Meretz Chairman Yossi Beilin sharply criticized the state budget, approved on Sunday by the cabinet, Israel Radio reported Monday. "The combination of Kadima, Labor and the Pensioners' party [GIL] gave birth to a piggish capitalism which could easily compete with the capitalism of the [Likud leader and former prime minister Binyamin] Netanyahu years," Beilin said. "The Labor party broke a record by turning its back over everything it presumed to represent. The budget is a slap in the face of the promises to minimize gaps in society that this government has been making since it was established," Beilin added.
