"We have an emergency situation, not because of one but several crises. That's why we also have to talk about the debt brake. It's not sustainable given the situation."
"A temporary property levy would also be conceivable. We need a new justice treaty."
The restrictions due to the war in Ukraine are just the beginning: "The climate crisis will require many more restrictions," she said."Companies have to check whether they can throttle the heating and air conditioning systems in the offices and workshops. The same applies to public buildings, golf clubs or water parks."
The distribution is unfair and only shifts the problems into the future. Instead, "real reforms" are needed. In detail, Baas demanded that the federal government pay more for the financing of Hartz IV recipients and referred to the coalition agreement:"The plans are a particular burden on those who pay contributions. With higher contributions and their reserves, they are intended to close most of the billion-dollar gap in statutory health insurance, which has arisen primarily as a result of political decisions in recent years."
" There, the increase in the subsidy for recipients of unemployment benefit II is promised, since the contributions are currently anything but cost-covering."
He also sees with concern that both the statutory long-term care insurance and the social long-term care insurance are not sufficiently financed for the next few years."The measures are mainly at the expense of the contributors, a blatant social imbalance."
Your rant is completely understandable and rightly so! It's all madness. And when you consider that many are happy to make savings in order to harm Putin or support Ukraine, I almost feel sick.Some kind of anticipatory obedience. I am sick and tired of having seen it reemerge over the last few years. Please excuse this little rant, I thought I share it as an anecdote. And I will try to gain back my balance and not lose energy in the process. Upwards and onwards, these times are anything but boring.
My father said they have it so good, we in the West had it so good (I fear someone discovered the ailment of Western privilige). All that without any questions if this is what should be happening. Without doubting the rightfulness of Western sanctions. Just meekly getting in line with, what sounds and is like good old wartime perseverance slogans. It gets at me. In Germany, we have the fitting phrase "vorrauseilender Gehorsam". Some kind of anticipatory obedience. I am sick and tired of having seen it reemerge over the last few years. Please excuse this little rant, I thought I share it as an anecdote. And I will try to gain back my balance and not lose energy in the process. Upwards and onwards, these times are anything but boring.
When asked whether she really expected popular uprisings, the foreign minister replied that that was "perhaps a bit exaggerated". But she also emphasized that such a scenario was actually a threat "if we ran out of gas"."Canadians said, 'We have a lot of questions.' We said: We can understand that. But if we don't get the gas turbine, then we won't get any more gas, and then we won't be able to provide any more support for Ukraine, because then we'll be busy with popular uprisings."
