A News Corp Australia investigation reveals only two of Bill Shortens top-20 team members are likely to be among the 840,000 Australians hit by the ALPs nest egg raid, which will leave some self-funded retirees on modest Labor fat cats to avoid super tax crackdown incomes with 15 per cent less to live on. The Opposition Leader himself and shadow finance minister Jim Chalmers are set to be unscathed by their plan to abolish cash refunds for excess tax credits on share dividends, as is treasury spokesman Chris Bowen who last week dared those affected to vote against us. Mr Bowen made the comment, which Treasurer Josh Frydenberg labelled arrogant, after being confronted by a self-funded retiree living on about $60,000 annually who said he would be $5000 a year worse off under Labors changes. Mr Shorten yesterday invoked Margaret Thatchers famous U-turn remarks to defend the policy, vowing were not for turning. Do people want a government with tax principles and fairness at their core or do they just want a lump of political putty? Mr Shorten told the ABC. Some long-serving Labor figures such as Tanya Plibersek are likely to retire on nearly $200,000 because they are in a politician-only super scheme so generous their own party successfully fought to get it closed to MPs elected after 2004. Its understood Penny Wong and Anthony Albanese are in line for similar lifetime payments once they leave politics. Unlike most parliamentarians, neither discloses their super arrangements on the pecuniary interests register. Ms Pliberseks office confirmed she was in the pre-2004 parliamentary defined benefits scheme but did not respond when later asked about the likely size of her lifetime pension. Its believed she and other senior Labor figures in that scheme are in line for annual taxpayer funded retirement payments of nearly $200,000. Analysis of the parliamentarians pecuniary interests register shows the only Labor luminaries likely to lose out in the franking credits crackdown are shadow Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus and Senator Kristina Keneally who are in selfmanaged super funds (SMSFs).
