German politics is trying to decide who will follow up Ms Angela Merkel now that she’s announced her retirement from politics. As this current government will be her last, the CDU conservative party that she leads needs to prep a new Chancellor.

As stated in our coverage of her retirement, only a few of the seven candidates that have stepped forward are to be taken seriously. Ms Merkel would like Ms Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, dubbed in the German media as ‘Mini-Merkel’, to be her successor. The 56-year-old former premier of Saarland ruled the German-French border province from 2011 till 2018 and currently has the best chance of becoming the next CDU leader.

However, Merkel’s greatest critic within her own party, health minister Mr Jens Spahn, is not ready to give up without a fight.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Health Minister Jens Spahn suggested that childless income earners pay more into the German pension system than parents.</p>&mdash; Handelsblatt Global (@HandelsblattGE) <a href="https://twitter.com/HandelsblattGE/status/1060858288135266304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

To get the voters to talk about him, he launched a controversial idea. As Germany is faced with a shrinking population, Mr Spahn wants to ‘tax people without children more.’

Wanting to rethink the ‘social benefits’ system first thought up in Germany in the 1900s, Mr Spahn said: "in the pay-as-you-go system, the elderly receive money from young people — even if they are the children of others."

He added that he spoke like someone who was "childless" and "willing to contribute more financially to the sustainability of the system" at a time when it was in trouble.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Have no children? Pay more taxes!<br><br>At least, this is what Germany&#39;s health minister Jens Spahn one of the three frontrunners to replace Chancellor Angela Merkel as leader of conservatives, suggests.<a href="https://t.co/u85Epq2xWe">https://t.co/u85Epq2xWe</a></p>&mdash; DW News (@dwnews) <a href="https://twitter.com/dwnews/status/1061010037961744384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr Spahn, currently one of the three frontrunners to replace Chancellor Angela Merkel as leader of the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), said that was how it should be. But he said the amount could "be more. Parents raise future contributors and secure the system for the future."

He also called for an honest debate about "how we remain a human society, how we maintain our social institutions, if every third person in Germany is over 60 years old, and less than a fifth are younger than 20?"

Germany has a European population growth issue.

The taxes are high due to all the Government funded help and reunification of years past., as they are still trying to bring 1/2 the country back into the real world.

In the process they have adopted many SOCIALIST programs the former East German (Socialist/Communists) were using at the time.

The Current Germany Socialist party tried Open Border Immigration to increase population and tax revenues, but ended up with an invasion of millions of Poor, Untrained mouths that have ZERO loyalty to anything Germany and are there to support ISLAM.

As a side note: Nazi Germany last did this back in 1930's - $0's prior to WWII.

Back then they trained school girls (16-21) it was their duty to produce children to repopulate Germany after WWI.

They even had breeding farms and special "unions" to make them approved morally and Legally.

They must compete with each other, those politicians, to see who can perform the most evil!

they just want more tax, the reasons they give are just a smoke screen.

And it will turn out to be ironic where the tax money goes.

Germanistan Kike wants to tax you for not marrying an indoctrinated feminist, so he can pay for the social welfare of the New Germans.
