The Opportunities Party - Gareth Morgan's Superannuation

The Opportunities Party - Gareth Morgan's Superannuation

Gareth has just reached that golden age that allows him to jump on the gravy train that is NZ Super. The fact that he will receive around $20k a year of Government welfare raises an important question that seems to get swept under the rug as soon as the election circus leaves town. The reality is that New Zealand’s Super bill is not affordable, and with an aging population and modern medicine keeping us alive longer, it’s only going to get worse. We know it’s unaffordable, yet we are giving money to people like Gareth and Winston Peters who will just spend it on overseas holidays, all the while, we have kids going to school with no shoes and empty stomachs.

We have explained in detail why this situation is crazy, and offered a solution that gets it to those who really need it, while also making it affordable for those who will be paying the Super bill ( your kids). You can read about this here.

The powers that be have continued to ignore the warning signs, so it seems we will have to keep waiting for real change. While we wait, we thought we would let the public decide what Gareth does with his super. Follow the link here to have your say. Make sure you watch the video first to understand our meaning.
