Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Putting VAT up is an indirect tax on everyone and will probably result in higher unemployment in the short to medium term. More unemployment is not what Germany needs. Yes getting the rich to pay more tax is good but nothing to celebrate when viewed against VAT going up.
