Labor party leader Shelly Yacimovich attacked Finance Minister Yair Lapid on Sunday equating his warnings that the deficit would necessitate painful budget cuts with the economic policies of Prime Minister Binyanin Netanyahu.

After Lapid wrote on his Facebook page Sunday morning that the economic situation was much worse than he thought, Yacimovich said, "My brothers the slaves, you will continue to serve as the ATM machine of the country and pay the price. Something new is starting in any event: this time you will read about the budget cuts and taxes on Facebook."
