The day after the budget vote is like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. The new day holds opportunities and risks, hopes and threats, for the Bennett-Lapid government. For an Israel that was limping along without an economic policy for almost two years, tossed like a ship on the waves of election after election, it is a symbol of the return to normalcy. No more “boxes” and “continuing budgets” and a series of big little lies. The recovery plan, which began 145 days ago with the establishment of a sane government, was completed last night with the passage of the budget for 2021-2022.
