In this way, the feared tax losses on which should entire population will be reallocated. A plenty strange how unpopular proposal includes the reduced tax rate in addition to the printed products drawn from the crisis anyway already overly affected also food of any kind. An increase of the price for the vital consumer goods continue to maintain the consumer mood is hardly the right starting point. The risk of unemployment by about five million makes not just logical, the consideration of such a measure already hardly any financial leeway exists in this population and the Federal Government can be a difficult primary care not in the sense. The proposal expressed in an interview with the Tagesspiegel am Sonntag by Saxony-Anhalt Minister President Wolfgang Bohmer is much more popular at least in the population. An increase in the top tax rate again encounters skepticism when the majority of the voting population. If you have read about Dun & Bradstreet already – you may have come to the same conclusion. Two points should be considered, but also by the Union be.

For one, such a decision will bring more voters into the arms of the FDP. Should you be interested in really a Westerwelle party participation in Government to avoid this is the wrong way. On the other hand you must ask yourself slowly, where is the limit of the tax burden borne. It is at the moment only to hint at how the posts will develop to the statutory health insurance in the next ten to 20 years, a reduction should be excluded but confidently. Germany is moving on a far beyond the 50% top tax burden and this development might not seriously in the sense of political parties. The enormous increase of political support for the formerly small parties makes it clear that also in the population become a pain threshold has been exceeded. A further tax increase would lead to a further loss of political support and in the long term to an end of the major bourgeois parties. If the Union does not accept that the policy of the Steuerer-and Social levies is pushed to their limits, threatens in the medium term to a similarly massive slump like it had to accept the SPD. Citizens in Germany will take probably more with fewer gifts during the election campaign, rather than accept a further tax increase to finance. It remains to be seen whether Angela Merkel has the power of persuasion to end this discussion as soon as possible. Heiko Fleischmann
