Delta airlines is about to get a lesson in “go woke, you go broke.” The Georgia State legislator just hit Delta airlines where it hurts after they criticized the state over their new voting laws.
Georgia Republicans won a vote to cancel a Delta tax break, to punish them for criticizing their bill that closed loopholes in their election laws.
The vote was held after Delta Air Lines, Georgia’s largest employer said, “I need to make it crystal clear that the final bill is unacceptable and does not match Delta’s values.”
Well that backfired the company will be paying more in taxes now.
“These business owners don’t live here and don’t know what our laws are,” Kemp said in an interview on CNBC. “Quite honestly, our laws aren’t as restrictive as the states where a lot of these businesses are residing. Perhaps they should focus on their own states.”
He’s absolutely right, New York and Biden’s home state of Delaware have similar laws.
Delta is posturing because they are under pressure from people like Stacy Abrams who are trying to use private companies to manipulate Republicans. A result Delta is now going to pay more in jet fuel taxes to operate their flights at one of the nations busiest airports.
Liberals like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough are fuming…
If you’re keeping score at home, Georgia’s GOP:
1. Started a civil war that lost the US Senate for Republicans,
2. Passed a voter suppression bill that supercharged their opposition , &
3. Are now starting wars with Atlanta’s most important businesses. 🤔 https://t.co/J63MhYsmJr

Pollster Ryan James Girdusky is calling for Republicans on the federal level to eliminate tax cuts for companies that promote social marxism.
Now Republicans on a federal level should follow and end tax cuts for companies that use most visas or promote social marxism. Stop rewarding people who hate us https://t.co/sOAE1EAFiU

Before the vote Coca-Cola’s Company chairman and CEO James Quncey said, “Let me get crystal clear and unequivocal this legislation is unacceptable. It is a step backward. It does not promote principles we have stood for in Georgia around broad access to voting, around voter convenience, about ensuring election integrity. This is frankly just a step backward. We have spent many decades promoting within Georgia a better society and better environment for business, and this is a step backward. Our position remains the same. This legislation is wrong and needs to be remedied. We’ll continue to advocate in both private and even more clearly in public.”
After what the state legislator just did to Delta he may want rethink what he says in public.
