General Dynamics doesn’t need tax breaks

To the Editor;
I read in the BDN that General Dynamics, the parent company of Bath Iron Works, just spent $9.6 billion to buy another company, a huge IT conglomerate that provides IT services to the government.

Whew! I’m relieved! With that kind of money at its disposal, General Dynamics certainly won’t need a puny $60 million tax break from Maine’s taxpayers. I hope that now our legislators will be able to vote no on LD 1781, confident that they are doing the right thing for the people of Maine.
