Ministers for Budget Responsible for Middle Class Fate


Former chairman Moshe Gafni of the Knesset Finance Committee said, Monday, that "Each and every minister who stands to support the serious economic degrees from the school of [Finance Minister] Yair Lapid and the Treasury will bear the responsibility for the difficult blow that will happen to the middle class and the weak levels of the population."

Speaking ahead of the cabinet vote on the budget, the United Torah Judaism lawmaker added, "The government knowingly chose to repeatedly hurt every sector of the public regarding health, welfare, education, housing and raising the cost of living. Yair Lapid and ministers who approve these decrees on all the sectors of the public will bear the historic responsibility as government ministers who hurt, in a most serious way, the weakest public and population in the state of Israel."
