Delta caves after Leftists attack airline, Georgia Lt Gov Casey Cagle leads counter move to kill tax deal

On Monday, Georgia lawmakers killed a tax deal designed to benefit Delta Air Lines after the airline succumbed to gun control activists and ended their relationship with the NRA.

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle said he would not support tax legislation that helped the airline “unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with the NRA.”

Delta claimed in a news release that their decision to end their relationship with the NRA “merely confirmed its neutral status” when it comes to taking a stance on firearms.

Gov. Nathan Deal and other supporters of the $50 million jet fuel sales tax exemption shifted to the defensive, and prompted a growing number of Republicans to try to strip the provision out of a broader tax-cut bill that has already passed the state House.

United said it is canceling its program for discounted rates to the NRA’s annual meeting.
