High-income tax breaks are nonsense. But the plans of the Federal Minister of Finance serve social unity.
FDP Minister of Finance Christian Lindner The proposed tax break is partly nonsense. People with an annual income of 200,000 euros do not need inflation compensation. The social side of the initiative must not be neglected. That doesn’t invalidate most of Lindner’s plan, however.
The dogma of the liberal tax policy is in the cornerstone that the FDP President presented on Wednesday. citizens of the best revenue should also be preferred. The current justification for this is wrong. Private households with a monthly income of 100,000 or 200,000 euros hardly feel the rise in the respective prices. Inflation is in no way a threat to their quality of life. So they have no place in the “Inflation Compensation Act”.

Additional relief for those who really need it, better equipment for schools and daycare centers, more teachers, additional nurses in hospitals. The social side of Lindner’s proposal is also evident in other respects. Because if you don’t pay taxes – really poor people – and don’t have children, you get nothing.

The monthly payments are likely to increase significantly, and the Social Democratic Labor Minister Hubertus Heil will see that.

Traffic light coalition: why the FDP can now prevail
Meanwhile, the Greens are pushing ahead with the expansion of renewable energies. In any case, Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock and Economics Minister Robert Hebeck are often the center of attention – no wonder given the international turbulence gas crisisWhich is to be managed by green ministries. So now it’s the FDP’s turn.
