Finance Minister Yair Lapid said Tuesday that Israel exists on "working people who pay taxes. Without them, we have no economy and no society."
Speaking at a conference of the Institute for National Security Studies, Lapid added: "We must help people live in dignity. People who are healthy and can work but think they're exempt from working need to know we will not be paying their bills." (Yoav Zitun, Avital Lahav)
