Yachimovich: Netanyahu Misleading the Public


Labor Party Chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich attacked PM Binyamin Netanyahu Saturday night after announcing that he would not raise taxes.

"Netanyahu is misleading the public when he says he will not raise taxes. Netanyahu is planning for social hell, economic chaos and political isolation - and the citizens of Israel cannot give up on the extraordinary opportunity to stop it."

Earlier, Netanyahu said in an interview on Channel 2's Meet the Press, "I do not intend to raise taxes. I will do everything in my power not to raise taxes. This is a very responsible undertaking - I do not know if there will be a collapse in the world markets, if so the situation would be different. The way I see things now, I'm not going to raise taxes."
