In 2002, Andreae was first elected into the German Bundestag. Between 2005 and 2007, she served as the Green parliamentary groups’ coordinator in the Finance Committee. From March 2007 to March 2012 she was the groups’ spokesperson for economic affairs and coordinator in the Committee on Economic Affairs and Technology.

After the 2013 federal elections, Andreae — who is considered a centrist in her party — unsuccessfully tried to become the chairwoman of the Green’s parliamentary group. Commentators regarded her loss against Katrin Göring-Eckardt as a sign that Green lawmakers rejected a chance to reach out to Angela Merkel’s CDU as a possible coalition partner.

Economic policy

In late 2013, when the government announced its plan to significantly increase social expenditures for the current generation of pensioners, Andreae called this a "flagrant pillaging of pension funds" and a "socially unjust" burden on lower- and middle-income individuals.

In 2014, Andreae criticised the government’s approval of utility group RWE selling its oil and gas unit RWE Dea to investors led by Russia's second-richest man Mikhail Fridman.

Human rights

In August 2012, Andreae was one of 124 members of the Bundestag to sign a letter that was sent to the Russian ambassador to Germany, Vladimir Grinin, expressing concern over the trial against the three members of Pussy Riot. “Being held in detention for months and the threat of lengthy punishment are draconian and disproportionate,” the lawmakers said in the letter. “In a secular and pluralist state, peaceful artistic acts -- even if they can be seen as provocative -- must not lead to the accusation of serious criminal acts that lead to lengthy prison terms.”
