Georgia Lt. Gov.: I’ll ‘Kill Any Tax Legislation That Benefits Delta’ Unless They Reverse Course on NRA
The lieutenant governor of Georgia defended the NRA today by making it clear he won’t stand for any tax bills that benefit Delta so long following their decision to distance themselves from the NRA.
Over the weekend, both Delta and United responded to online boycott efforts by ending their business relationship with the NRA:
Delta is reaching out to the NRA to let them know we will be ending their contract for discounted rates through our group travel program. We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website.
— Delta (@Delta) February 24, 2018
Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle took to Twitter this afternoon and, following similar calls by conservatives, said this:
I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.
