After reading the article on Wednesday by Tom Crawford concerning Delta tax breaks, I was astounded that our legislature would give tax breaks to a company that reported a $593 million profit after special items were excluded.

Also, I was shocked after looking online that all of our local representatives voted for the continuation of the tax breaks. Now I wonder how many other tax breaks may be being given to large companies that the residents of Georgia are financing.

It seems obvious the legislators are more concerned about large companies than they are about the individual residents of Georgia. Thank you to the 61 who voted against continuing this tax break.
