Doctors' protest: Livni says gov't failed to help the sick

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni addressed doctors and medical students demonstrating in front of the Knesset on Wednesday.
"It is the government's job to take care of the elderly, the sick and the poor, and this government has failed in that job," Livni said. "I call upon the prime minister to roll ups his sleeves and enter the negotiations room in order to increase the amount of doctors, add [hospital] beds so that every citizen can live here with dignity, even when he is sick."
