Georgia lawmakers punish Delta for severing NRA ties
LINK

quote:

The bill -- which includes a sweeping income tax cut -- cleared the state House on an overwhelming 135-24 vote, after being approved in the state Senate on a 44-10 vote. It now heads to the governor's desk.

The final version dropped an earlier amendment that would have renewed a jet fuel tax exemption worth $50 million that was taken off the books in 2015.

“Businesses have every legal right to make their own decisions, but the Republican majority in our state legislature also has every right to govern guided by our principles,” Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who very publicly threatened to pull the airline tax break earlier this week, said in a statement.


quote:

Connecticut Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy and New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo both have invited Delta to move its headquarters to their states in the midst of the company’s disagreement with the legislature.

So Delta won't let NRA members fly on their airplanes anymore?

WTF?

Republican lawmakers in Georgia were trying to get rid of this sort of corporate welfare, not just Delta's tax breaks. Cagle was opposed. Then the NRA stuff happened, the Republicans in the state were suddenly angry, so Cagle switched sides (but is willing to switch back if Delta drops their "NRA ban") because he is running for Governor.

I'm not a member of the NRA, but I applaud this decision by Georgia lawmakers.

Will you applaud it when Delta courts other cities to move it's hub and headquarters too?

Delta won't move

The underlying idea of eliminating the break is fine

Doing it in a way that makes you look like an insufferable suck up to the NRA is what I object to

I thought conservatives were all about letting businesses be run how the owners wanted to and government not getting involved. Apparently, in Georgia your business is required to follow the same political believes as the party controlling government.

It sounds like the fuel tax was going away before the NRA issue anyway. Guess you can't miss an opportunity to grandstand and score campaign points.

That is what the idiots like you in Connecticut once said about GE, and GE dumped their ass.

Over $50 million? Not going to happen.

Way too much invested in infrastructure. This isn't happening.

GE isn't a great example. Their company is in fricking shambles.

Hartsfield-Jackson would lose its status as world's busiest airport, too. Cagle is an idiot.

One of the excuses they used in Connecticut, among others. They also used the BS they've been here too long to move

Do I think Delta is going to up and move? No, but make a few stupid moves like this based on emotion and you may pay the price. Cagle is an idiot, but then he's a Republican. Delta is not going to give in.
