It's very simple. You cannot encourage people to support jobs & growth, if at the end you prevent them saving for their own retirement. The $1.6 million pension cap is reasonable, but the $500,000 Lifetime non-concessional super cap needs scrapping, as it prevents hard working Australians from saving for the $1.6 million pension cap. Most of the conservative independent parties have now indicated they would vote against the $500,000 lifetime nc super cap, if elected. They have 11% of the vote. Do the maths.
