This is being done despite knowing full well that both the current caretaker government and the opposition are intending to change the law so as to allow seniors on the NZ government-paid superannuation to be exempt.
Surely the Prime Minister, through the Minister for Finance, can get that cowboy Neves and his posse of money-greedy tax collectors to back off from hounding the old of this country for a fistful of dollars?
Shame of them for their actions against the elderly of this country who have suffered tremendously with the recent tax reforms introduced by this CIP government.
But if the finger of blame has to be pointed to anyone for the required amendment bill failing to be passed by Parliament, it is this country's leader Henry Puna. Had Puna remained at home more often to provide the leadership desperately needed by his government rather than fly off to attend numerous, waste-of-time talkfests around the far corners of the world, the required amendment bill would have been passed by Parliament ages ago.
As leader of the CIP-led government, Henry Puna has failed big time to fix what has been the biggest thorn in this government's side. For this my vote, and I guess the votes of many others, will not be in favour of the CIP candidates this coming elections.
