State of Georgia Archives: on Corporations


Jim Martin: Work with Delta Air but also respond to middle class needs

I believe itís important for a Senator from Georgia to work closely with Delta and other corporations to make sure the federal government is responsive to their needs but middle class America is also struggling. We need to do something about the cost of gasoline and the lost home equity thatís occurring because of the foreclosure crisis. So sure the government needs to do something about Delta but also protect the needs of middle class Americans.

Rand Knight: Invest in our communities, not in corporate subsidies

If we are willing to put our own people at risk while we give tax breaks and subsidies to the wealthiest corporations in the world, while we spend billions a day in the Middle East, then something is wrong. Weíve got to invest in our own communities. We need a revenue base to take care of our police and fire fighters. We canít just invest in the wealthiest one percent in the country without taking a look at the people on the ground and their safety.
