weeks ago the federal chancellor announced then there was a dispute in his governing coalition but now it is the third relief package with which citizens are to be supported in view of the high energy prices the state wants to use a total of 65 billion euros for this you can be proud but there is a few more question marks they are smiling the leaders of the traffic light coalition they have been negotiating in the chancellery for more than 18 hours up to 1 has been grueling negotiations in the end there is a result 1 65 billion euros relief package it is a lot what we are moving it is necessary and it should help that the citizens can go through this situation together with us specifically, the relief package includes three of these measures: pensioners now also receive a flat-rate energy price of 300 euros students 200 euros the entitlement to housing benefit will be expanded the planned citizen’s benefit will be increased and the child benefit will also be changed 18e euros per child on the first of january and there is a proposal for the new euro ticket successor on the table the federal government wants to provide 1.5 billion euros for this we hope that a ticket will be launched very soon in germany with prices 49 euros about how the relief will be paid the coalition had argued extensively spd and greens wanted a tax on profits for companies that benefit from the crisis the fdp and did not come up with a compromise a tax that is not called tax on profits and skim off

random profits on the electricity market should and in order to use these additional services not own innovation but solely through the current situation to use them to relieve citizens of the prices with the money an electricity price brake is to be financed is a real relief in the double-digit billion range the euro amount that we are talking about here is a two-digit billion euro amount within the electricity market that we are redistributing lindner is confident that the debt brake will be observed again next year despite all the new relief stephanie strauss in berlin followed for us as did the coalition about this relief package stephanie negotiated for 18 hours was that the three coalition partners sat together what made the whole thing so tedious there were simply many different proposals on the table and in terms of content the three parties are also really far apart in parts, especially the spd and the greens with the fdp, we just heard that the fdp definitely didn’t want this tax on profits and then there was another point, of course, the financing we can't say exactly why the traffic light has turned on there s prudent what she has already done in the coalition negotiations she simply kept her mouth shut and that is why very little was leaked out 65 billion does the state want to spend now where does so much money come from all of a sudden there is a surprising amount of tax revenue from them inflation christian lindner said 32 billion euros for 22 and for 23

that is now a buffer but these 32 billion are still a long way from 65 billion so there is still some money missing and there should now be tax on these random profits because they should be skimmed off but that should be done at european level there are already signals from the eu commission ursula von der leyen said excessive profits from energy companies should be skimmed off but the eu still has to agree on whether and when it can do that it will take a while so there are still a few unanswered questions about stephanie strauss live from berli n Many thanks for that yes and in the last few weeks there have been a lot of demands on the government about what should be in the relief package demands from social organizations from the economy and also from the

now that the package is available there are mixed reactions from industry and trade are disappointed that the presented package counts almost exclusively on private households economists also criticize the most important challenge, namely the price shock for gas and electricity will not be solved the social association vdk, on the other hand, welcomes the announced 300 euros for pensioners and the heating cost subsidy for housing benefit recipients who go to the parity welfare association the aid, on the other hand, is not far enough this package will perhaps reach 506 million more of the approximately 14 million poor people we have in germany the rest will not stand still in life approval comes from the trade

unions they would have liked more relief for people of middle income wished to come there is still room for improvement here and there i see this in the citizen's allowance i see this as a child benefit that has some catching up to do the union doesn't leave a good hair on the federal government's package overall the decisions made by the traffic lights are imprecise to ask concrete and dissatisfied one can maybe ask one task list for the traffic lights under no circumstances talk about a real relief package from the for the citizens a lot has unfortunately not been solved the coalition does not give any answer at all as to where the electricity for the next few weeks and months is supposed to come from they basically have this supply shock We didn't address this at all with the lack of Russian gas, let alone compensated for how strong the relief is, which only becomes apparent in winter anyway
