Prebble urges people to make submissions on Super bill
Monday, January 15th 2001, 9:15PM
Many issues have not been addressed. The scheme is not sustainable and locks New Zealand into a high tax future.
The scheme creates a huge politician-controlled fund, equal to the total investment in every public company. The scheme is designed to smooth out super, but in reality young taxpayers will contribute to the fund all their lives and find that when they retire, the fund is exhausted. These taxpayers will revolt.
Public submissions on ACC and the Employment Relations Bill resulted in major amendments, and with Dr Cullen promising to consider amendments, it is definitely worth making one. Submissions close 9 Feb.
ACT's own survey shows our members overwhelmingly favour compulsory savings-based superannuation, with savings to be held in a private savings account of the individuals own choice - very much like the MPs' own existing superannuation scheme.
