TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Berlin (AFP) The Greens want to make taxpayers' travel more expensive by tax policy measures and in turn reduce rail prices. If the kerosene tax for domestic flights is reintroduced, could be lowered in return, the VAT for train tickets, suggested party leader Robert Habeck on Sunday in the ZDF summer interview. "Some will pay more, the majority will achieve benefits," said the Green Party Chairman on his proposal.
