Yishai: Lapid Looking for Money in Children's Mouths


MK Eli Yishai (Shas) slammed the cut in child allowances on Monday evening, warning that the move will be the cause for a future commission of inquiry about poverty among children in Israel.

"The Finance Minister is looking for the money in the mouths of children instead of in the debts of the tycoons," Yishai said. "The decisions of the Finance Minister on these matters stemmed from irrelevant considerations and certainly not economic ones. It is regrettable that he found it necessary to sacrifice the children of Israel on the altar of Knesset seats.”
