Netanyahu says he'll lower taxes as soon as he becomes PM

Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday that he intends to lower taxes this year, despite the global economic crisis and the sharp drop in income tax revenue. He said he will put into action a series of processes, as soon as he becomes prime minister, most likely in the coming two weeks. The first step, said Netanyahu , will be lowering income tax for low and medium income earners, and company tax for small business.
