Most I don't think are intentionally doing it, but are motivated by greed to get more and more money to do more and more things they have the power to do. If we have one person trying to use government money to fund as much as possible it would probably be alright.... but everyone... not a chance. Every single politician is motivated by greed. Greed occurs in all aspects when it comes to money, if there is money there is always greed... Greed can happen in things that are "good" and "bad"... even too many good things is bad, because in the end someone needs to pay for it.
This to me is like any other conspiracy theory, these people are far to stupid, selfish and self-aggrandizing to work together on any master plan.
