Electioneering Politicians trying to sell their Superannuation Changes
I am amazed at the politicians continued blunders when it comes to superannuation. It is a complex piece of legislation to start with (and not for the faint hearted), but just like Centrelink; if you know what you are doing then it is a challenge worth undertaking.

In Sarah’s case, she lacked knowledge about her own party’s proposed changes to the legislation (as outlined and recorded for all to relive through the Sydney Morning Herald website). This causes confusion and fear into the hearts and minds of the Australian People, when all I want to say is, it is not yet legislation and until it is, NO-ONE know what it will look like. It is all speculation and fear mongering to draw reactions, generate discussion, change voters minds or cause confusion about who to vote for.
