This party performs research and makes new discoveries that have been vital to the advancement of the human race. They are not a wasteful government bureaucracy, and making them answer to a corporate board room (which is what private) about return on investments is not going to improve anything.
I think you are right in that the general public thinks like this. But once you get into the government, they know this isn't true.
