Opposition blasts approval of 2015 budget

The Labor faction on Wednesday morning criticized the cabinet's approval hours earlier of the 2015 budget, saying the plan would continue to hit hard on the middle class and weaker socioeconomic classes.
The opposition party denounced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yair Lapid in light of the compromised reached by the two on next year's budget.
"Netanyahu and Lapid are living in a parallel universe where the public health system is flourishing, there are spacious classrooms in schools and social inequalities do not exists, otherwise it is impossible to explain the audacity of presenting this budget as a state budget," read a statement issued by Labor.
