After the publication of the exploratory paper by the SPD, the Greens and the FDP, the Juso federal chairwoman Jessica Rosenthal expressed herself critically on aspects of financial policy. "What we cannot understand is how the investments are to be paid for in the end and why the redistribution aspects that are important to us do not occur there," the SPD politician told the Phoenix news channel on Friday. According to the broadcaster, she was disappointed that the property tax demanded by her party is not provided. But she also said: "I think that's part of such an exploratory paper - it always hurts everyone somewhere."

But she had to say that precisely on the issue of redistribution she simply did not understand "why the FDP remains so tough on these points," said the chairwoman of the SPD youth organization.

On Friday, the negotiators from the SPD, Greens and FDP presented their exploratory results together and recommended coalition negotiations.

The exploratory paper says: "We will not introduce any new taxes on assets and we will not increase taxes such as income, corporate or value-added tax."

"When it comes to affordable housing, too, we are unsure of what it means in the end," said Rosenthal.

»If we look at what actually about mobility, how do we expand mobility?

What kind of investments do we need?

In any case, there are still question marks that remain. "

Nevertheless, she was satisfied with large parts of the exploratory paper, said Rosenthal, according to Phoenix.

“We are definitely satisfied when it comes to the socio-political area.

This is a new beginning when we look at the question of immigration law, the immigration society.

This is an important point where there is a clear commitment. "

Juso press spokeswoman Pauline Schur also told the newspapers of the Funke media group: "As Jusos, we are pleased that Hartz IV is finally history and that everyone in Germany is able to live in dignity and social participation with the citizens' money." also the desired earlier coal phase-out.
