Labor Party chair Shelly Yacimovich called data released by the National Insurance Institute on Tuesday a "fire in the face of Prime Minister [Binyamin Netanyahu]," Army Radio reported.

Yacimovich said the report, which said that 1 in 5 Israel's cannot afford to purchase food, shows that Netanyahu's economic policy "leaves the weak behind, condemning them to suffer at the expense of those who can survive."

The Labor MK nicknamed the prime minister's policy "a Darwinian economy," adding that the Finance Ministry's intention to cut the national budget will hurt most the poor that are unable to provide for their children health, welfare, and education.
