MK Yishai: The Treasurer is Detached from the People

Member of Knesset Eli Yishai (Shas) said, Monday morning, that Finance Minister Ya'ir Lapid is cut off from the population. Yishai was responding to a report that the number of Israelis who cannot get by on their salaries has risen 47 percent. He said Lapid "has not internalized the fact that concern for the poor and weak sectors should disturb his sleep before the other headlines."

Yishai added, "The current government, led and directed by the finance minister, has expanded the circle of needy workers to unprecedented dimensions." He called on Lapid to disconnect from Facebook, take a break from slogans against the hareidi community and dedicate his time to all levels of the people of Israel.
