At the same time, Delta has legislation that permanently eliminates taxes on jet fuel sitting in the Georgia State Senate, after passing the House.
DUMP DELTA TAX BREAK
State Senator and candidate for Lieutenant Governor Rick Jeffares is first to speak against it. Jeffares said that the airline eliminated the discount for 100,000 Georgians for political reasons so they must have plenty of money to burn.
“If Delta is so flush that they don’t need NRA members hard-earned travel dollars, they can certainly do without the $40 million tax break they are asking Georgia taxpayers for,” Jeffares said.
The tax break they seek is in House Bill 821, which is currently in the Rules Committee.
Delta responded in a statement claiming cutting discounts reflects their neutral status. It’s not political! They support all kinds of leftist causes and are really big on Marxist diversity, but they want you to believe they aren’t taking sides against the 2nd Amendment.
