- Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed a new tax bill into law Friday that fellow Republicans changed to punish Atlanta-based company Delta Airlines for dropping a special deal they offered to members of the National Rifle Association.
Why would a slew of them, fearful of the National Rifle Association, seemingly have no problem with voting to take away a $50 million tax break from Delta and risk the possibility that almost 85,000 jobs sprint across the state line, along with tens of billions of dollars for the local economy?
The broader tax bill would cut the top tax rate for individuals and businesses and double the standard deduction for all filers.

Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter said Friday the discounted fares had been available for a short time and were only for NRA members purchasing flights to the group's 2018 convention in Dallas. "Out of respect for our customers and employees on both sides, Delta has taken action to refrain from entering this debate and focus on its business". "Our decision was not made for economic gain and our values are not for sale", he wrote.
Perhaps some of these places could feasibly make a play for Delta's corporate headquarters, but the vote in Georgia was about a fuel tax, not some corporate real estate issue.
Other companies have offered more context for their decisions after an initial statement distancing themselves from the gun organization.
