The federal government denied on Wednesday that it wanted to give preference to special-class patients in the outpatient area of ​​hospitals. “It will not come and it was not planned,” emphasized Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) after the Council of Ministers. Health Minister Beate Hartinger-Klein (FPÖ) declared: “This is an invention of the opposition.”

The stumbling block is an amendment to the Hospital and Health Resort Act (KAKuG), which was discussed in the National Council’s health committee on Tuesday. It is intended to enable the federal states to levy special class fees in their public hospitals for outpatient interventions that were previously carried out on an inpatient basis.

“The collection of such special fees must be matched by adequate services,” says the explanations of the law, which drove the opposition to the barricades. It was warned of “VIP treatment” and a “fast lane” for special class patients, so a preference for waiting times.

Kurz made it clear that people with more money would definitely not be given preference in this area. “We clearly reject this and, if necessary, write it explicitly into the law.” Neither shorter waiting times nor any other better treatment nor a free choice of doctor will come in the outpatient area. The initiative for the regulation also came from the time before the turquoise-blue federal government, it was emphasized in government circles.

Hartinger-Klein also said that something like this should be strongly rejected and that it is not part of the law. “Everyone in the inpatient and outpatient sector is to be treated equally.” She herself had contributed to the confusion, however.https://123helpme.me/ In the health committee, she had said that the special class for outpatient treatment could exist with regard to the waiting area or the free choice of doctor.

Maximilian Krauss

is Federal Chairman of the Freedom Youth, the youth organization of

FPÖ

as well as district party chairman of

FPÖ Vienna

Josefstadt. He talks about in our “Young Politics” series

“brown slip”

in his party, the migration and education policy of the FPÖ,

Sebastian Kurz

and the

Tone in politics

.

News.at: You are 25 years old, how did you get into politics? What sparked your interest? Maximilian Krauss: I basically come from a political family, not partisan, but you talked about politics and current issues. In the run-up to the split between the FPÖ / BZÖ – Heinz-Christian Strache was by far the youngest party leader. In the Vienna election he ran with interesting topics and posters and stood out. A year or two later I got to know him personally and then became a member of the Freedom Youth and subsequently a member of the FPÖ.

When asked about political role models, would you answer Heinz-Christian Strache now? Definitely Heinz-Christian Strache. But Jörg Haider also got a lot of things right. He was the first to break this red-black system and even if a lot went wrong afterwards, these first years certainly serve as a role model.

How is communication with the FPÖ going? Can the Freedom Youth (formerly Ring Freedom Youth, this is currently being changed) act completely freely or does it have to be coordinated with the FPÖ? Communication with the FPÖ is very good. At the SJ (Socialist Youth) you often hear that the SJ criticizes the SPÖ and back and forth. That’s why you might hear a little more about them in the media.

“We have the function of a management workshop”

Is the Freedom Youth, like the SJ, totally independent? We don’t have to vote, but we have a different role. We have the function of a management workshop. In addition, many concepts that are now being implemented in the federal government, such as German before school (note: also known as “German classes”) come from us.

Doesn’t a youth party have to be “rebellious”? It doesn’t mean that that’s why you have to go d’accord everywhere. If you look at history, then the RFJ (Ring Freiheitlicher Jugend) was the first preliminary organization of the FPÖ, which Jörg Haider criticized sharply in government phase 1 and said: What the FPÖ does in government has nothing more to do with what we were chosen to do. At the moment we are very happy with the federal government.

How would you describe the mood in the country right now? I believe that, contrary to media coverage that often says that the country is divided, we are very satisfied with the government. Basically, I believe that the mood in Austria is not bad. Of course there are young people who are afraid of the future, who do not know what to do next. But that is often also an educational issue.

You are the education spokesman for the FPÖ in Vienna. Do you think that your approaches to solving the problem of migration, such as a headscarf ban, German classes or compulsory German during breaks, contribute to integration? “German before school” is certainly a good measure because in Vienna we saw that the old concept had failed. How am I supposed to teach science or mathematics in elementary school when the students can’t even speak German? In the same way, however, children who speak German at the age of six have the right to find proper lessons where content is conveyed. Therefore “German before school” as well as German as a colloquial language – where there is a little discussion with the education minister who, I believe, has no concerns about the content, but where you will see whether this is constitutionally possible.

Don’t you see it as an enrichment for students to learn something about other cultures and languages? It is enriching when 80 percent of the class speak German and two or three others talk about their language and their culture. The enrichment stops when two people speak German, 15 maybe Turkish and ten another language.

“I wonder where we’ve got to when the law already has to prohibit three or four year olds from wearing a headscarf. «

The

Headscarf ban

… has already been fixed. The discussion is an absurd one, because I wonder where we’ve got to when we have to legally prohibit three- or four-year-olds from wearing a headscarf.

Also absurd in that there are hardly any such little girls with headscarves? There are definitely Islamic kindergartens in Vienna where the headscarf is worn. As soon as something happens, it is necessary to enshrine this in law, because no one can convince me that a four or five year old girl puts on the headscarf for religious reasons.

Today you are education spokesman for the FPÖ Vienna, four years ago you were rejected as deputy city school council president by Mayor Michael Häupl because of “denigrating the office”. Did that hit you? Now I think to myself: It’s been four years and I’m in the town hall and he isn’t … At that time it was of course a personally uncomfortable situation. But it was still important not to give in, because the points we asked for at the time were a very big issue. That was the German classes or the headscarf ban.

© APA / Schlager Krauss was appointed by Häupl in 2014 as deputy. City school board president rejected. Because of “denigration of the office”

There were three popular petitions recently. You have signed the GIS request, but not the women’s referendum and the smoking referendum? No.

Why not? Do you think everything has already been done in terms of equality? There were points in the women’s referendum, such as abortion on sick leave, which I could not have reconciled with my attitudes. But there are other points, for example equal wages, which have not yet been fully implemented in Austria and of course you have to sharpen them here.

With you and Mr. Strache, two men are at the forefront of the FPÖ and its youth. There are also fewer women in the FPÖ than in other parties (the FPÖ has the lowest proportion of women in the National Council with 23 percent). Are you trying to get more women into the party? Yes absolutely. It would please me. An appeal to all young women to contact us and become a member. Unfortunately, we have a large number of male members and not the same number of female members.

Why is that? I think it’s a bit of a phenomenon that the FPÖ is currently being elected by more young men. I’m not an expert on why that is, but it might be an interesting topic to deal with one day.

You are very present on Facebook and Instagram. How important is social media in politics these days? Can you still be successful without it? I think if you want to be in an active role, they are extremely important. I don’t think that without it you have to be extremely unsuccessful. See ex-mayor Häupl; even if I was never his fan and he was never mine, but he won elections even without Facebook.

Another problem with social media is that

Hatred on the net

. The government has to do this

“Digital masking ban”

announced. Do you think this anonymity can really curb hatred? I believe that anonymity leads some people to say things they wouldn’t say if they knew you knew who they were.

© News.at Krauss during an interview with News.at: “I’m not a big fan of Van der Bellen”

You yourself tweeted about Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen: “I have never liked him and I am glad that I hardly hear from him. If so, it’s mostly nonsense. ”What bothers you about Van der Bellen? The fact that, as a freelancer, I was never a big fan of his is not particularly surprising. At the same time, of course, he is the elected president, that is acceptable. But when he criticizes the government for the

UN migration pact

has not signed, then there are content-related differences, where a politician must have the right to objectively object, even if he is the Federal President.

Do you find your statement: “I never liked him …” objective? I make it a point that it wasn’t an insult. It was just an emotional evaluation, but it is permissible.

In the FPÖ, “brown slips” happen again and again. How do you feel about it? There are slip-ups in all parties. If there was something in the FPÖ that was in the direction of trivializing the darkest time in Austria, our federal chairman always reacted consistently and kicked these people out of the party.

Throw-in from the press office employee who was present at the interview: This is not in the newspaper the next day.

“Orban is an important politician in Europe who has done a lot of things right. «

In September you shared a statement by Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban on your Facebook page: “Don’t let them in and send those who are there home.” You write: “Viktor Orban speaks plain language”. Don’t you think that statements like that stir up hatred? This is a speech he made about illegal migrants. The essential thing is illegal. Does that stir up hatred? No, I think Orban is an important politician in Europe who has done a lot of things right. And he has just said that he does not want illegal migration in Europe and I personally think that is absolutely right.

(Note: Maximilian Krauss did not mention that the slogan concerns illegal migration.)

Another topic that is currently being debated is Tempo-30 on Vienna’s Josefstädterstrasse. As FPÖ district party chairman, you speak out against it. Why? Tempo-30 would mean that the trams would run much slower, which would delay the intervals. In addition, this important traffic axis would be completely blocked and it would lead to even more traffic. At the same time, particulate matter pollution would increase because studies show that more is emitted than at 50 km / h.

»We want more parking spaces again, we want private transport to be encouraged. «

So here we see the next anti-motorist measure. We would rather have more parking spaces again for Josefstadt, we want private transport to be encouraged. We want that there are no longer delays in the intervals of the public transport, no cycling against the one-way in some cases, no meeting areas. We just don’t want certain road users like cyclists to be taken advantage of.

You don’t want to motivate people – with an eye to the environment – to switch? I think it’s important not to always have to tell people everything. And people who have to drive to work because there is no other way to put another Hackl in their way is the wrong way.
