Federal Minister of Family Affairs Lisa Paus (Greens) against the plan of Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner (FDP) to abolish the cold progression for a broad discharge of families.

This would particularly use "top earners".

would also lead to reduced revenues, especially in the federal states and municipalities in a double -digit billion dollar height.

Senate Democrats want to tax hedge funders by closing a loophole while Republicans cling to the hope that Sinema will object

  Senate Democrats want to tax hedge funders by closing a loophole while Republicans cling to the hope that Sinema will object Democrats are suddenly tiptoeing closer to a deal on Biden's economic agenda, but closing the carried interest loophole could be a sticking point."This Senate Democratic majority will ensure the wealthiest corporations and individuals pay a fairer share in taxes," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Thursday at the US Capitol while debriefing congressional reporters about the state of play of the stunning deal he and centrist Democrat Sen. Joe Mahchin of West Virginia sprung on everyone late July 27.

Paus called for a "targeted" relief. "This crisis has a dimension that cannot be completely compensated for by the state," said the Greens politician. "It is important that we support those who are in existence. These are particularly low -income families and pensioners."

The Hartz IV control rates, child benefit and housing benefit would have to be increased. "We can also increase the children's surcharge for families who have to increase," said Paus.

The family minister spoke out for a "relevant increase in child benefit". Families with medium -sized incomes would also benefit greatly. "I think that's the better instrument. It is not about a one -off payment, but about a permanent increase in child benefit."
