Letters: Politics, superannuation and flying the kite

Readers comment on speculation that the Government may have plans to tinker with superannuation again, with one wondering how to 'kill the kite' before it gets out of control.

I support Robert Gottliebsen's opposition to the Federal Government's almost compulsive desire to fiddle with superannuation rules to find ways of gaining more tax revenue, and in doing so, creating disincentives for people wanting to fund their retirement independently (China and super: Big changes afoot, February 8). For example, at 51, with insufficient savings in superannuation (partly thanks to the global financial crisis), I'm extremely frustrated by the $25,000 limit on pre-tax contributions.
