Georgia passed some kind of Protect The Vote law.
Delta Airlines CEO mouths off about it, being all woke and wanting to Virtue Signal Left.
So the Georgia House figures he doesn’t need their $35 Million of special tax breaks – and votes to remove them.
That there’s one $35 Million Dollar “Get Woke Go Broke” mouth…
Tim Pool’s take on it:
Fox Business report on it:
Georgia House votes to strip Delta of tax break after CEO criticized voting law
Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian called Georgia’s new voting law ‘unacceptable’
The Georgia House of Representatives voted Wednesday to strip Delta Airlines of a multimillion-dollar tax break in a symbolic rebuke of CEO Ed Bastian, who joined other business leaders in criticizing recent changes to the state’s voting laws.
The Republican-controlled House voted along party lines to end a tax break for jet fuel worth more than $35 million annually, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Georgia’s Republican House Speaker, David Ralston, acknowledged the vote was meant as a reprimand following Bastian’s remarks.
“They like our public policy when we’re doing things that benefit them,” Ralston said, adding, “You don’t feed a dog that bites your hand. You got to keep that in mind sometimes.”
Georgia’s State Senate did not bring the House-backed measure up for a vote, effectively scuttling the GOP’s push to revoke the tax break. Some senators reportedly had reservations about revoking a financial incentive as Delta and other airlines contend with the negative effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
One wonders if the Senate can still bring it up a bit later…
Hey, Delta (and Coke): How about you just shut up and fly the damn planes on time and at a decent cost? How about you just put sugar water in bottles and sell it at a decent price? How about I don’t want to know a damn thing about your politics AT ALL not one way or the other.
Does the phrase “just mind the business” mean anything anymore?
