MK Cohen to Oppose any Cuts to Welfare Ministry


Minister of the Welfare and Social Services Ministry, MK Meir Cohen, announced on Sunday that he will oppose any budget cuts to his ministry in order to cover the costs of Operation Protective Edge.

“The Welfare Ministry is the last hope of hundreds of thousands of families on the brink of financial and emotional collapse. Who are we to take from? From those who have not what to spread on their children’s sandwiches for school?” the MK exclaimed.
