Politics?  Buying the  votes of  the public?  Maybe they  felt that  the
people demanded that the government do  something (did they even ask the
people?), anything, even if its  fiscally irresponsible and won't really
help  much. Kind  of like  recent airport  security; its  theatrical and
meant to  give you the  security warm  fuzzies, but doesn't  really help
much and in fact may actually be harmful to security in general.

Also, who is going to stop them from sending them?
