Labor MK Amir Peretz on Wednesday said that the government has abandoned its citizens, speaking after the release of the Trajtenberg Committee for Social Change's recommendations earlier in the week.

The Trajtenberg Committee, Peretz said, correctly identified the problems that need correcting, but was incapable of recommending true prescriptions for fixing them due to its constraints of operating within the current budget, he told Israel Radio.

Peretz described threats made by the Finance Ministry that Israel risks the type of harsh economic deterioration seen by some European countries are "futile threats."
