Just as the Union hides the GroKo budget tricks, Lindner also keeps it today with the old Adenauer: What do I care about my chatter from yesterday? It was less than three months ago that the head of the FDP was irritated: If you use the authorizations opened up because of Corona to “to a certain extent create a stock”, that is not serious. As Finance Minister, Lindner is doing exactly what his predecessor, today’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz, hatched and what the FDP as opposition criticized. The fact that Lindner points out that the net borrowing was 24.8 billion euros lower than expected, i.e. the government “is not exhausting what is possible”, does not make it any better: he risks violating the constitution. (…) Yesterday the minister again promised relief, but this is likely to be eaten up by higher prices, especially for energy. This will lead to frustration. The fact that the economy is only slowly recovering does not make the “enabling minister”‘s job any easier.
