New Labor Party leader Shelly Yacimovich denounced Sunday the government's passing of the Trajtenberg Committee's recommendations on socioeconomic change, accusing ministers of ignoring the harm they can cause.
She compared the Trajtenberg Report to the mammoth Arrangements Bill presented annually by the Finance Ministry, which contains a wide range of disconnected clauses and is often used to hide unpopular decisions so they could pass unnoticed.
"The vote today took the objectionable path of the Arrangements Bill," she said. "In a few hours, rebellious ministers were bought off with a million shekels who ignored the damage the report's recommendations could inflict."
