The TraJtenberg Committee's recommendations constitute an echoing disappointment to the Israeli public who expected a real change in priorities, and is an artificial attempt to stifle the social outcries, Kadima spokesman said.

On the surface the Trajtenberg Committee's report contains several recommendations that are correct, partially, and that would still need to stand the test of real application. However, they do not hide the huge gap that remains between the just demands of the  hundreds of thousands that took to the streets, and the results, that reinforce the crooked set of priorities of Netanyahu'a government.

Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni demands that the prime minister cuts short the Knesset recess immediately, to formulate a new budget for 2012.
