Laschet for less bureaucracy, Scholz for solidarity – both opt for tax relief

(GermanPolicy.com) – The two candidates for the office of Federal Chancellor, from the CDU and the SPD, have affirmed their different positions in tax policy. Armin Laschet (CDU) accused the SPD of endangering the positive economic development in Germany through tax increases. Relief is needed, as is the reduction of bureaucracy, Laschet affirmed.

Olaf Scholz (SPD) called relief for high earners “a lack of solidarity.” The SPD, the Left Party and the Greens are planning to counter-finance relief for low-wage earners through tax increases for high-income earners.
