I do not think this change would do any better. it definitely ease the problem for 2 yrs and then everything setteled down down to usual equation.

Mike, you ought to give it more thought. Private savings or payments into private super schemes to ensure that one can retire comfortably at 65 are going to have the same net effect on disposable income as an increase in taxation. It would make more sense if politicians were to forget about superannuation altogether and focus on finding ways to raise the country’s economic performance and to achieve full employment.

If you are making a packet out of your job with say the likes of an acc chairman and then on top of your already saved mills, your private super etc do you really think you should be entitled to claim the pension? For goodness sakes. You cannot take it with you. What about leaving an entitlement to the lesser minnows that work equally hard at their jobs. Its called compassion.
