Berlin, Aug 15th (Reuters) - In the debate about the relief package planned by Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP), the coalition partners SPD and Greens further improve. Green parliamentary group vice Andreas Audretsch called for a tax relief in the "Rheinische Post" (Monday edition) of small and medium-sized incomes, higher regulatory rates in basic security and direct payments such as the energy prices.
Audretsch and SPD parliamentary group vice Achim Post, according to the newspaper, confirmed the skepticism of both factions to Lindner's plan to reduce cold progression. "The Minister of Finance's proposal aims to favor top earners with often well over 100,000 euros in income. This is not a reasonable proposal in the current situation," said Audetsch. Post described Lindner's draft as "in need of improvement and supplementary, especially to relieve small and medium-sized incomes and pensioners noticeably."
