No more riding Porsche with social funds

While many Germans are living in desperation with no security of their job, their social benefits are also squeezing.

After all there is some logic in not paying benefits "to someone who has a brand new Ferrari standing outside their house" (Dirk Niebel of the Free Democratic Party).
