Kadima responded angrily to reports that money has been earmarked for income support for full time yeshiva students in the 2011-2012 budget which the Knesset is expected to vote on Monday.

In a statement released on Monday, Kadima said "Netanyahu has broken a new record for cynicism, chutzpa, and disrespect towards the Israeli public."

Following wide opposition to the bill proposed by MK Moshe Gafni, Netanyahu announced Saturday that the bill would not be voted on by a Knesset committee until it was reworked and on Sunday he said that a committee would be formed to that purpose.

"On Sunday [Netanyahu] announces that he is establishing a committee and on Tuesday he pushes money for the yeshiva students into the budget. This is a disgraceful standard of deception," said Kadima.
