When we look at the magnitude of the benefits the wealthy receive versus the magnitude of what the non-wealthy receive, it's quite clear who benefits more.
I have always used a certain analogy when trying to explain who benefits more in such scenarios....
It's a pretty simple one;
Imagine you had to pay $2 for the $1 menu hamburger simply because you made more money than the guy in front of you and for no other reason?
You get the same hamburger, the same service, only you are paying twice as much.
