Labor: Steinitz policies will lead to 'social hell'

December 30, 2012 20:45

The Labor party's socioeconomic team on Sunday responded to harsh criticism from Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, saying that if his and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's economic policies continue after the January election, Israel will be a "social hell."

"It's amazing to see how stressed the Prime Minister and Finance Minister are from their inability to give real answers to the questions that bother Israeli citizens, so they increase their attacks on the only responsible plan that has been publicized and is supported by many economists," Labor stated, referring to the party's platform.

Labor added that the Netanyahu government was economically irresponsible, harmed the poor, brought an unprecedented deficit and led the Middle Class to fall apart.
