The question is: Is it a bad idea to give rich people free stuff and more free money?
The answer is what is the result of such giving. If giving results in the welfare and well being of the mankind, the idea at human level is good. If giving results in mischief and disorder among mankind, the idea at human level is bad. What is beyond human level is universal policy of the Creator in which many other creations are also involved hence what is the hidden wisdom, unless that is revealed, the answer would be incomplete due to the unknown facts and circumstances. Hence, the giver is responsible to the extent of his own fair judgment, he will get its reward. If the rich betrays the trust reposed in him, the accountability is there, however, remote in time it may be. Accountability means reward and punishment in the ultimate judgment with full transparent fairness of the trial.
