Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The entire German political establishment appears to agree that the ECB is configured as it should be.

No promiment German politicians question austerity, and most economists who do are in "exile".

What you propose will be done over Germany's dead body.
