We already do that for the Public Sector. It's called general taxation. Why not just get us to pay for the rest of it as well?Have you seen Willie O'Dea's latest brainwave, Purple? Tacked on as an afterthought to a report about him suggesting a change of legislation to force companies to fund deficits in defined benefit schemes they are closing, he is asking the Pensions Authority to "investigate the prospect of setting up a central fund, via a levy on pension funds, to help top up pensions in cases of company insolvency" ... so basically get DC contributors to pay for deficits in DB pensions
Brilliant!I think we should definitely impose an additional tax on anybody that enters into (what turns out to be) a good bargain. Why should they get all the breaks?
Good judgment should definitely be heavily taxed.
