Every person who has become wealthy has become so via the society in which they made their money. The entire infrastructure, the educational and justice system enable the institutions to function that yield reward. That entire context is 'of the people and for the people' so it is only correct that those who benefit give back proportionately.
Recently there was an article in the NYT showing how in fact the rich got far, far more HANDOUTS than the poor: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/14/business/a-nation-with-too-many-tax-breaks-economic-scene.html?_r=1&ref=eduardoporter
