Tricksereien bei der Neuberechnung des Hartz-IV-Regelsatzes

16. September 2010 Katja Kipping

Betroffene an die Macht

Zur Tricksereien bei der Neuberechnung des Hartz-IV-Regelsatzes durch Ministerin von der Leyen, erklärt die stellvertretende Vorsitzende der Partei DIE LINKE, Katja Kipping:

Frau von der Leyen bereitet den nächsten Verfassungsbruch vor. Selbst im Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales geht man von einem Regelsatz von 430 Euro aus. Wenn die Ministerin zur Berechnung nicht mehr die untersten 20, sondern die ärmsten 15 Prozent der Bevölkerung heranzieht, darüber hinaus auch nicht die verdeckt Armen aus der Bezugsgruppe herausrechnet, manipuliert sie. Das Urteil des Bundesverfassungsgerichts wird mit Füßen getreten. Fehlanzeige auch bei der Abschaffung der grundrechtswidrigen Sanktionen und Bedarfsgemeinschaftsregelung. Es wird Zeit, den Lobbyismus für Konzerne und Reiche im Lande zu stoppen. Stattdessen müssen von Armut Betroffene im demokratischen Prozess zur mächtigen Lobby werden - erst recht, wenn es um ihre Existenzsicherung geht. Davor fürchtet sich die schwarz-gelbe Bundesregierung.


Hartz wird zukünftig nicht in Basisgeld umbenannt

Das sollte ein ganz toller PR-Clou der Bundesarbeitsministerin Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) werden. Ab dem 1. Januar 2011 sollte der Begriff "Hartz IV" in "Basisgeld" umbenannt werden. Auch wenn sich nichts an der Ungerechtigkeit der Arbeitsmarktreform Hartz IV ändert, wenigstens wäre der Name neu. Anscheinend geht man im Bundesarbeitsministerium davon aus, dass bereits eine Veränderung des Namens die Gemüter beruhigen könnte.. Lesen Sie weiter: &

The Nation
by Jeremy Scahill

Blair should take a journey to jail

Information Clearinghouse
by Jodie Evans


I leapt up with handcuffs held high above my head. ‘You Liar. I was in Iraq and met with weapons inspectors before we invaded and they said they had found no WMDs. You are a War CRIMINAL! LIAR!’ At this moment I was surrounded by NYC cops and British Secret Service and they slammed me up against the wall and dragged me out of the room to cheers. The British guys were brutal, dragging me, yelling at me and begging the NYPD to arrest me.

Stop Karl Rove From Stealing Another Election

Today we jump back in to support the initiative launched by our activist friends at Velvet Revolution, to confront the latest corporate attempt to muscle in on our elections.

Karl Rove has joined with the corporate controlled US Chamber of Commerce, four conservative billionaires, and a host of Big Business CEOs to amass and spend more than $50 million to elect pro business, pro-deregulation candidates in November, using a corporate front organization called "American Crossroads". Please help blow the whistle on this giant leap towards unmitigated American Fascism.

Stop American Crossroads Action Page:

Velvet Revolution has already filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice requesting an investigation into American Crossroads because of its de facto takeover of the Republican National Committee without the concomitant regulatory controls and its laundering of secret money. And now we need your help. Just submit the form above to send an instant blast e-fax to your members of Congress and President Obama, requesting a full investigation into the activities of Rove's group.

They are also releasing ads calling on each candidate supported by American Crossroads to reject the support. The first ad focuses on Carly Fiorina, who is running for Senate in California. The tag line says, Carly, do the right thing, tell Karl Rove to keep his dirty tricks anddirty money out of California elections!

Obviously the looming threat posed by the sinister Supreme Court decision in the "Corporations Unregulated" case is already a pressing constitutional crisis. This is why we need everyone to help us distribute the "Corporations Are NOT The People" bumper stickers while there is still time to save our democracy.

Please consider picking up a bulk pack of 25 for just a modest donation, which is what makes it possible for us to send free bumper stickers to anyone who cannot make a donation right now. Be the key activist in your own neighborhood to get these in the hands of all your friends and on to their car bumpers.

Bulk Corporations Are Not The People bumper stickers:

And you can always get one free for yourself with no donation required, if you have not requested yours already. You can also have your choice of an "Impeach The Supreme Court 5" bumper sticker.

Single bumper stickers for no charge:

And here is the Facebook link for the Stop American Crossroads action page further above.

And this is the Twitter reply for this same action

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.


Surge in Housing Supply Will Drive Down Prices

Home ownership has become an albatross. Prices are falling, demand is weak, foreclosures have skyrocketed, and inventory is backed up to the moon. If there's an upside, it's hard to see.

If the armies of another nation invade your country, there is no need to resort to lies to sell war. The battle is already joined. The threat is palpable. Anyone with a smidgen of patriotism and/or the instinct of self-preservation will rush to enlist.

Escaping Tolerance

Michael Winship, Truthout: "I visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum out on Columbia Point in Boston late last week for the first time since shortly after the permanent collection opened in 1980.... In one of the clear plastic display cases were two typewritten pages from one of the most important speeches JFK ever delivered: his address to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association on September 12, 1960, exactly 50 years ago this week. Dogged by misperceptions about his Catholic faith and scurrilous allegations that his dedication to country would be superseded by allegiance to the pope, Kennedy tackled the separation of church and state head on, with words as relevant, in the face of today's Islamophobia and other unreasoned fears, as they were then."

Scaremongering Report About Islam Reveals Political Posturing

Yana Kunichoff and Mike Ludwig, Truthout: "The conspiracy-minded conservatives with the Center for Security Policy lashed out at the global Islamic community on Wednesday with the release of a report that uses a narrow and radical definition of Islamic law to argue that the United States is threatened by a global Islamic 'mafia' that is waging a 'stealth jihad' through American organizations like the Muslim Student Association and the Islamic Medical Association. The authors liken their mission to a team of Cold Warriors who re-evaluated the threat of global Soviet Communism under then Director of Intelligence George Bush Sr. in the late 1970s, and the right wing is eating it up as controversies involving Muslim Americans continue to make headlines."

David Montero, The Christian Science Monitor: "Taken together, these September strikes would constitute the single largest bombardment unleashed by unmanned drones since the US military initiated the controversial program some six years ago, according to the Guardian. They would bring to 70 the total number of strikes launched this year, a new record. (The Long War Journal charts US drone strikes since 2004.)"
