Bennett on deficit: Gov' knew income but kept spending
Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett commented on the 4.2% increase in Israel's deficit, saying: "Israel's government acted in an irresponsible manner. Even though the government knew that its income had decreased it kept spreading money around and even promised to expand government spending by an additional 30 NIS billion (roughly $8 billion) in the upcoming year."
