#OeRR So geht #Desinformation und letztlich Hetze gegen #Armutsbetroffene!

Das #SGBII hat seit 2005 gewaltig etwas verschoben & das #Buergergeld macht nicht einmal geschätzte 5% davon rückgängig!
Genau diese Falschaussagen sind logisches Resultat, da der #Journalismus in #Deutschland seit 2005 es mehrheitlich nicht fertig gebracht hat, statt mit Buzzwords wie "HartzIV" zu arbeiten, die zugrunde liegende "#Sozialgesetzgebung" kritisch und historisch zu kontextualisieren.
