    Because they see it as an enormous pool of money, there for the taking. For 30 years the business model in America has been "surpass last years numbers." This is a pernicious way to do business, and has led to collapses like Enron and Lehman Brothers.

    It's part of the Republican mentality to scout for resources that can be plundered and used to turn a profit to a select few. Whether it's oil in shale or large funds set aside to help retirees, the impulse is the same: grab, exploit, profit, and get out before anybody can finger you for the crime.
