The Kadima party on Wednesday criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu saying "he is good when it comes to take pictures with firefighters, but very bad when it comes to paying them."

According to a statement released Wednesday by the Kadima spokesperson, "Netanyahu belittles the State Comptroller's report and proves that he hasn't learned a thing. The government's vote against the firefighting budget is disgraceful and no 'Super Tanker' can compensate for this. Let's see Netanyahu searching on Google now for how much money he is keeping from the firefighters."
