CDU General Secretary Paul Ziemiak has accused the social Democrats of wanting to make a name for themselves with their social state plans to the detriment of the citizens.

“The SPD is trying to treat just at the expense of our country – with proposals, which can be understood neither someone nor funded,” he said of the “Welt am Sonntag”. He referred to the fact that the SPD, the penalties for young Hartz IV abolished receiver, the duration of the unemployment benefit I extend and qualification measures, the unemployment benefit Q would like to pay. “This will All lead in the end, people are no longer dependent on state services,” said Ziemiak.

The concept of the Federal Minister of labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD) to the basic pension will be accepted by the Union in any case, he reiterated. “This proposal will lead to more injustice and will not be implemented in this coalition with the CDU, also one-to-one.” Union and SPD agreed in the coalition agreement a basic pension, the long-time contributors to a pension that is above the Hartz IV is intended to secure – but only if you are in need of. On the agreed-upon means-tested healing want to be without now, to the displeasure of the Union.

The SPD Deputy Chairman Ralf Stegner looks with the jerk to the left of his party, the more chances for a red-red-green coalition at the Federal level. If the social democracy gains back confidence and new strength, to be a majority in the Bundestag beyond the Union’s “conceivable and possible”, he said the Newspapers of the Funke media group and called the greens and the Left. Currently, the surveys are not, however, a red-red-green majority, far from it.
