Kadima on Monday submitted the 25 signatures of MKs necessary to force a special summer Knesset session during the recess after the government passed sweeping austerity reforms.

"The little guy will once again have to pay big time," Mofaz said. "The little guy can not carry the weight of the bloated government of Netanyahu on his back. The government scattered checks it could not cover for three years and at the last minute is forcing the public to pay for its irresponsible policies. The prime minister needs to ask himself how he brought Israel to an unprecedented economic hole and he needs to explain to the citizens why they have to pay the price."
