With your rejection of Hartz IV, the SPD is on the right path. She focuses on social-democratic values and forcing the Union to position itself. The SPD must now show that they can prevail.
The Deputy CDU Chairman Volker Bouffier criticized the SPD wanted to "position it as the protection of the little people". The CSU leader Markus Söder wants to not just talk the talk, "where we spend even more money for social projects". Again, it is momentum in the political debate in Germany. And all this only because the SPD has decided to return to social democratic politics.
last Sunday, had already taken care of the basic pension proposal of the Minister of labour Hubertus Heil for Controversy. Now the second string follows. The SPD wants to get, among other things, children from the poverty with a minimum wage of perspective 12 Euro, the so-called top-up recipients from dependence on public transfers-exempt. And older workers, the fear of social descent.
This is to be introduced in the unemployment insurance, the principle of merit. Who pays longer, can no longer benefit. This is fair and long overdue. Much more important, however, is that the SPD is forcing the Christian Democrats to position themselves. Finally, there is now a front position between the SPD and the CSU and CDU, on the other side.voters see the differences
The social Democrats were perceived in the past years, too often only as a weak social corrective for the Union parties. Now the voters may finally realize again the differences between the parties. This can be good for our democracy as a Whole. The SPD shows that it has ideas of how she wants to make our country better. This is the basic prerequisite to be in wider layers as an Alternative perceived.
Nevertheless, all is not Gold that glitters. The loss of confidence in the electorate is profound. The social Democrats now need to show that you can implement the very controversial ideas, at least in Parts. Also against the resistance of the Union. The only way the party could build up the lost trust again. A further Problem relates to the public perception of the SPD. You must communicate your concerns better. More important than simple name for the new laws a recognizable unity.proposal almost
fizzles emerged As last Monday, the discussion on the financial sustainability of the basic pension, there was no clear Signal from the SPD Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz. It was only later that he stood behind the proposal. That gave the Union the opportunity to cast doubt on the plans of the SPD. Almost, the proposal would be dissipated thereby.
in This case, the SPD would have had-the Minister of Finance of good arguments on his side. The CDU and the CSU are calling for the complete abolition of the solidarity surcharge for the richest ten percent of the population. This costs significantly more than the SPD of the basic pension. If so it would be possible for the Wealthy to relieve, why do we not advance with a basic pension and a children's basic support for justice in the country?
in Total, the SPD is on a good way. You should now not be dissuaded. No matter how big the resistance is. In the coming time, the biggest challenge for the social Democrats.
