MK Itzik Shmuli (Zionist Union) commented on the "Latet" poverty report published this morning:

"The capitalism of Netanyahu is pushing more and more Israelis into dumpsters."

Shmuli asked where the Prime Minister and his government were when it comes to the one-in-three children in poverty in the country.

"Latet are right. There is no long-term plan for dealing with the poverty situation, it will only deteriorate further. Therefore it's imperative that my bill on this matter is adopted this week."
