Both should be dealt with but the person that has hurt the people of the country by 30 times more than the lesser person can afford to pay off officials and hire a lawyer to make the problem of being caught with prosecution pending go away... On the other, hand the person with little in the way of resources that took much less will be sent to jail, fined, and have a criminal record that could forever prevent him or her from ever being gainfully employed.... Both are bad but one is much worse yet because of his wealth he is not going to suffer.

For me they are both as bad as bad as each other.
If you engage in tax evasion it's a criminal offence.
If you fraudulently claim for benefits that you are not legally entitled to this also is a criminal offence.
There is no middle ground. Rich or Poor the act either way is illegal as both offences should be dealt with via the full force of the law.
