The best response to the rising cost of living is not to move to Berlin, it is to fight the government's economic policies from within Israel, MK Itzik Shmuly (Labor) said Sunday.

Shmuly has 10,000 objections to the budget, focused on making life better for young people, which he plans to submit when the Knesset's winter session begins in two weeks.

"Ten thousand is a crazy number, but there is no choice. We have to stop this budget somehow," Shmuly said. "We have to try to reduce the harm to young couples and recently-discharged soldiers."

The MK worked with university students and other volunteers to compile the objections, which he plans to submit in to the Knesset Finance Committee, where they will be brought to a vote as part of the budget proceedings.
