That would take NASA (the state funded agency) to take over putting people and equipment into space. They are now solely a permission and policy agency; the private sector has taken over American space venturing.
So unless you're planning on taking over SpaceX and the companies following suit, good luck paying off anything at a federal level with the undoubted riches afforded by asteroids.
