Paz-Pines criticizes deal between Kadima, UTJ

Labor MK Ophir Paz-Pines criticized on Friday the coalition agreement between Kadima and United Torah Judaism. According to Paz-Pines, the agreement overtaxes the budget and is likely to cause sweeping cuts in all government offices, Israel Radio reported. "Existing benefits should be improved," Paz-Pines said, "but new benefits can't be added."
