So why should he pay more for the same SS benefits just because he has more?

It is called redistribution of wealth and is a concept that any civil society should have. Poor people often lack adequate food and shelter and education and health, which keeps them from leading the kind of life that everyone values. Why should the rich keep getting richer at the expense of the middle-class and the underprivileged. In my opinion there is a strong moral obligation to assist people. The main factor that contributes to poverty is distribution and this is one way in correcting this problem.
