The proposal is to form the basis of a tripartite discussion between party leaders angela merkel (CDU), horst seehofer (CSU) and philipp rosler (FDP). However, a date has not yet been set.
There will be no "horse-trading" in this, the FDP headquarters were assured. "An exchange of concessions has not been considered."According to the newspaper "die welt" (wednesday), CDU/CSU faction leader volker kauder, on the other hand, made fun of the FDP’s demands for a care allowance at a faction meeting on tuesday. To illustrate the scale of the liberal amendments, he said: "what the FDP is asking for is worth two porsche cayennes. But the childcare allowance is not even worth a porsche cayenne."
