MK Orit Zuaretz (Kadima) on Monday called the government "bloated" and "disconnected" after the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry announced that the price of a price-controlled loaf of bread will rise by 6.53 percent.

"[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu and [Finance Minister Yuval] Steinitz chose to fill the holes in the budget with money from the poorest stratum," Zuaretz said.
