Baerbock criticizes tax policy plans of the Union and FDP: Investment rule for urgent modernization of the country
Relieving the burden on top earners means "that we cannot support families who really need it and that municipalities continue to find themselves in the rain," warned Baerbock.
Your policy is different.
She wants to invest in local life, support families and lift children out of poverty.
And people who work hard every day need a wage that they can live on, at least twelve euros.
Anyone who wants to help in the Corona crisis and in view of the flood disaster “has to say where the money is going to come from,” Baerbock continued.
She also advocated adding an investment rule to the debt brake.
"Anyone who blocks this is denying this country its urgent modernization," she said.

This also applies to the necessary change of direction to a climate-friendly economy.
"The economy is much further ahead than the current federal government," criticized Baerbock.
Germany must quickly become climate neutral, "also in order to secure the competitiveness of German industry and its jobs".
“Anyone who continues to believe that we can continue with the model of massive fossil fuel use cannot credibly say: I protect people from extreme weather events,” said Baerbock, referring to the flood disaster in western Germany.
Her call for more climate protection is also about “protecting the freedom of our children”.
