Yacimovich calls Finance Ministry clerks 'fanatics'

MK Shelly Yacimovich on Tuesday lashed out at the Finance Ministry clerks, calling them "fanatics" during a Knesset deliberation on the proposed 2008 budget. The ministry adhered to an extreme and callous approach to the weaker strata of society with its insistence on limiting the annual budget growth to no more than 1.7%.
