Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid criticized the Treasury's intention to raises taxes on Monday.

"Before the government shoves its hand to the pockets of citizens who are unable to meet their monthly financial obligations, it needs to change its priorities and freeze the funds put into settlements that are not within the major areas of settling, as well as stop giving money to haredim who are not working," Lapid said.
