Netanyahu: Government of lies’ budget benefits the rich

Opposition leader Netanyahu is now speaking.

He lauds anti-government protesters who gathered in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square yesterday, saying they came to “drive out the darkness “of the current government.

He says the new budget is filled with new taxes and economic edicts that will hurt the country, referring to new taxes on soft drinks and plastic cutlery, which he claims will hurt lower-income individuals while benefitting the rich.

He denounces the “government of lies” which he asserts will raise the costs of living for Israelis.
