someone making 100k/yr paying 6.2% of his entire income versus someone making 1million/year who pays virtually the same nominal amount, effectively a much much lower percentage of his income.
and the ROI he will receive is likewise a much much lower percentage of his income.

should your neighbor have to contribute to your 401K too?
