Likud’s ตอบ: ลดอัตราภาษีเงินได้และลดช่องว่างทางภาษีทั้งหมดที่มีอยู่ขององค์กรขนาดใหญ่The rich will be paying higher income taxes as of this year. Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz (Likud) signed the new tax regulations in recent days, which levy a 2% surtax on incomes of NIS 800,000 a year. This sum includes taxable income from any source - not just salary - including capital gains, dividends, interest, rents, etc. Steinitz had to sign the new withholding rules, so that now any employee with a monthly salary of over NIS 67,630 will pay the extra 2% starting January 2013. The treasury expects the tax hike to bring in NIS 600 million a year in higher tax revenues.Source

Netanyahu and Kahlon said that value-added sales tax would be lowered from 18 percent to 17 percent beginning on October 1.
In a joint press conference with Kahlon, Netanyahu said the move is designed to act as a “growth engine.”Source
Likud’s ตอบ: ไม่ลดการใช้จ่ายทางทหารแทนMinister of Finance Yuval Steinitz is expected to submit to the cabinet a proposal that will upend the fiscal rules for public spending by the government. He proposes a new spending formula that will define public spending as a function of the average growth in the previous years while aiming for a debt-to-GDP ratio of 60%, the level stipulated in the EU Maastricht Treaty.
The current spending formula limits growth in government spending to 1.7% over the previous year, a figure that is in line with Israel's population growth rate. The new formula will let the government increase its spending in 2011 by 2.6% compared with 2010.
The Ministry of Finance said today that this will give the government greater flexibility even as it tries to reach the 60% debt-to-GDP ratio.Source
Likud’s ตอบ: เจ็บฉันสนับสนุนบางส่วนสหภาพแรงงานส่วนตัว แต่ฉันอย่างยิ่งกับสหภาพแรงงานของประชาชนA new Likud campaign ad released on Thursday effectively compares government workers to Hamas terrorists. The video, filmed at a "support group" meeting, shows actors playing a dock worker, a regulatory agent, a former cellular executive, and a Hamas terrorist commiserating about how Netanyahu's policies have hurt them.
The ad opens with the actor portraying a dock worker saying, "I am here because of Bibi. After his reforms I suddenly had to start working, to start providing service to the public."Source
