Former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni responded Tuesday to the announcement that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would seek to raise the value added tax (VAT), saying raising the VAT as if there were no socioeconomic protest would harm the middle class and the weak.
"Instead of courageously changing his priorities, Netanyahu is letting Israel enter tough economic times with a bloated government with sectarian political priorities," she said.
