The Bundestag decided the basic pension with the votes of the coalition factions of the Union and SPD against the votes of the AfD and the FDP, with the Greens and the Left abstaining. Social Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD) called the basic pension a central political reform project of the federal government in the Bundestag debate. It is not alms.
