Robbing public to pay for private education

It’s hard to figure what must be going through Rep. Earl Ehrhart’s, R-Powder Springs, mind when he proposed HB 140. Actually it’s not difficult to see Ehrhart’s intention is to give a bigger tax break to parents who choose to send their children to private school. The tax break parents presently receive is capped at $50 million, but Ehrhart’s bill would increase that by $30 million and the cap could increase over time but never decrease.
