That's Occasional-Cortex/Obama logic. Of course it's their money. And those people who "helped them get it"? They were compensated for their labor by being paid. Amazing, huh?!
If I open a book shop, stock it, and get it ready to open, then, hire two people to work in my shop, they are not entitled to two-thirds of what the shop makes. They are entitled to what I have agreed to pay them. No more, no less. You can whine all day with your long list of "what-ifs", but, that is the bottom line.
