Goering-Eckardt criticizes compromise on basic pension

Green Group leader Katrin Göring-Eckardt has criticized the grand coalition's compromise on basic pensions as insufficient.

"It has little to do with a serious and responsible pension policy," she told the newspapers of the Funke media group (Wednesday editions). "There is still a lot more to be done to ensure that old people are really well protected and that we reduce poverty in old age."

The pension premium will not reach many people who really need it. "In addition, there are the serious problems and unresolved questions regarding administration and financing, which the coalition and especially Finance Minister Scholz is now simply postponing into the future and unloading at the next federal government," said Göring-Eckardt.
