Super struggle

In recent years, the government co-contribution went from $1500 to $1000 to $500 and now looks like zero, depending on the political party.

What is the use of trying to save to be self-sufficient and a self-funded retiree and not go on the old-age pension?

Maybe we should live for today, spend everything and let the government look after us in the ageing years when our finances are slowly being eaten away and our health is deteriorating.
