Yes I do have an answer. Fairness is not about whether A would be better 
off if a change is made. It's about how A is treated relative to B.

If the US government routinely made payments of $1000 to every 
registered Republican voter, that'd be unfair regardless of the fact 
that Democrats would live their lives just as before.

It's pretty weird that I have to explain this, to be honest.
