Opposition leader Shelly Yacimovich on Tuesday criticized Finance Minister Yair Lapid's draft state budget saying the proposed cuts represent "cruelty, backstabbing the public and mainly a bitter economic mistake which does not bring a single shred of good news."

The Labor leader called the plan one of "depression and hard hits and not a growth plan."She stated that Lapid was continuing the mistake which had led to the budget deficit, failing to sufficiently tax "big capital."

Yacimovich slammed Lapid for contradicting his campaign rhetoric which slammed "the old politicians" for raising taxes on the middle class.
