The CDU labour wing want to defuse the coalition dispute over the planned basic pension with a compromise proposal.

Also, the CDU social politician’s insistence on the controversial means test, these should, however, be less extensive than originally planned. Reviewed the current income of a household, but not the assets or the size of the apartment, should be only the Chairman of the Christian said Democratic workforce (CDA), Karl-Josef Laumann, the editorial network Germany (RND).

A basic pension without means test and recognition of a possibly existing higher partner’s income would be unfair. “We can’t do that for the basic pension, as it made no difference whether a couple receives a very good and a small pension, or two very small pensions,” said Laumann.
