Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz's economic policy, calling it "irresponsible."

"The [budget] deficit is unreasonable," Lapid said at an academic event in Or Yehuda.

"It's a loan on the expense of our children, that see their parents struggle and work hard, pay taxes and serve in the army, [yet] unable to pay off all of their monthly bills," he added.
