求教翻譯a year from extended deduc
That meant an annual tax reduction of 14 billion euros a year from extended deductibility of health-insurance contributions, with the aim of 24 billion euros total annual reduction by adjusting income-tax brackets for lower- and middle-income earners. It meant increased child allowances and inheritance-tax reform. The coalition also promised a radical simplification of tax forms and procedures.
But Greece's problems erupted as the new Bundestag was taking office. By early 2010, polls showed German voters had turned against tax reform, fearing it might cast doubt on Berlin's own solvency. In May 2010 Mrs. Merkel declared tax cuts off the agenda for at least two years.
In early 2010, Guido Westerwelle, the party chief who led the FDP through its 2009 triumph, took heat for criticizing the "socialistic" backlash against Gerhard Schroeder's labor reforms. By 2011 Mr. Westerwelle's pugnacity -- and absence of legislative achievement to back it up -- was looking like a liability. The coolerheaded Philipp Rosler took his spot, promising VAT reform to compensate for the lack of progress on lowering income taxes. But as the FDP continued losing state elections, that pledge was also cast aside.
2010年初，領導「自民黨」取得2009年大選的黨魁威斯特威勒（Guido Westerwelle）因批評對前任總理施若德（Gerhard Schroeder）的勞工改革的「社會主義式」強烈反彈而甘受責難。2011年，威斯特威勒拓拓逼人的氣勢（但沒有支持這股氣勢的立法成績）似乎是一項不利條件。頭腦較冷靜的侯斯勒（Philipp Roesler）取代威斯特威勒成為「自民黨」黨魁，並承諾推動「加值型營業稅」（VAT）的改革以彌補降低所得稅的進度落後。但「自民黨」仍輸掉國會大選，該誓言亦遭到擱置。
