(GermanPolicy.com) – According to media reports, the traffic light coalition intends to propose a mobility allowance for small and medium-sized incomes. A model by Federal Finance Minister Lindner (FDP), who had brought a tank discount into play, is no longer on the table.
The mobility money of possibly 20 to 50 Euros per month should flow for three months. This would cost one billion Euros. The CDU had called on Lindner to consider a tax cut on fuel instead of a premium and warned of windfall effects for mineral oil companies. The CDU-CSU had, on their part, submitted a draft according to which sales and energy taxes would be reduced.
Pensioners are disadvantaged by a mobility allowance, which the president of the social association VdK said. According to the plans of the traffic light coalition, the state subsidy is to be paid only with salaries.
