This should then apply "from the first kilometer and not just for long -distance commuters". Support came from the Union.
SPD and GREEN urge the coalition partner FDP to give up resistance to over -profit tax. "The SPD will take a new attempt to introduce an over -profit tax for corporations that are enriched by the crisis," said party leader Saskia Esken of the "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" on Saturday. Green boss Ricarda Lang said on Sunday on ZDF that such a tax could be financed for citizens in autumn.

Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner is against an over -profit tax. The FDP chief had warned this week that such a delivery would open "door and gate for the arbitrariness in the tax system".
"I know Mr. Lindner's objections," said Esken, but emphasized: "The fact that companies benefit from the crisis without their own performance is an imbalance that we have to get to." "It should not be" accepted that energy companies collect crisis gains at a time when the state stabilizes gas suppliers with a solidarity award or even with tax money. This is rightly perceived as great injustice. "
