Gil Pensioners' Party faction head Moshe Sharoni announced Sunday that he intended to summon his party's members this week and convince them to vote against the 2008 state budget and the Arrangements Law, even if they're approved by the cabinet. "I don't mean to lend my hand to such brutal harm to the weak and vulnerable populations - the elderly, Holocaust survivors, and polio victims," Sharoni said. "I'm sure that all five of our MKs will agree with me and vote against the budget and the Arrangements Law in the Knesset [plenum]," Sharoni continued. "Together with other opponents [of the budget] in the coalition and opposition, we can torpedo the Treasury's merciless plan."
