MK Peretz: Raise Taxes instead of Cutting Education Funds


MK Amir Peretz spoke on Sunday of the expected budget cuts to the Education and Welfare and Social Services Ministries, due to the need to transfer funds to the Defense Ministry following Operation Protective Edge. “Broad budget cuts will directly hurt the weaker populations… who cannot afford to pay for basic education, health and welfare services,” Peretz said.

Instead, the MK suggested raising taxes for high-salaried workers.
