It is the government's responsibility to provide public housing for the tent dwellers, said Welfare and Social Services Minister Moshe Kahlon in an Israel Radio interview Thursday morning.

The budget is not sacred and we can revise it in order to allocate money to worthy causes, he explained.

According to Kahlon, all economic sources can be used in order to solve the country's social issues as long as they don't pose a serious threat to its economy.

The minister also expressed his support for the Trajtenberg Committee, saying that he believes it will provide solutions to the social issues.
