Hatnua Chairwoman Tzipi Livni referred to the rise in market prices brought in with the new year and said that "the Netanyahu government is crushing the middle class and spitting on the public's face. The government couldn't care less about Israeli citizens."
Livni added: "For four years the government has cared for those who don't contribute to society or to the economy, due to narrow political interests. In Israel of 2013, if you are not Netanyahu's natural partner, you are no one." (Moran Azulay)
