WHOOPS! Delta Airlines Loses MASSIVE TAX BREAKS Over 13 NRA Discounted Tickets
Delta Airlines made national headlines last week when they announced their decision to remove discounted tickets for members of the National Rifle Association; prompting the Georgia legislature to kill nearly $40 million in tax breaks on fuel.
Just how many tickets has Delta sold using the NRA promotion? 13.
The airlines confirmed to USA Today they’ve sold just 13 NRA-discounted tickets, meaning each ticket has now cost the airline roughly $3 million in tax credits. The fare was a short-term sale available to NRA members flying to the group’s 2018 convention in Dallas, Texas.
“We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian.
Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle slammed Delta’s decision to punish members of the National Rifle Association following the airline’s decision to remove the discount, saying “We cannot continue to allow large companies to treat conservatives differently than other customers.”
“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,” he posted on social media.

Dems Renew Call for Gun Crackdown After Vegas Rampage
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy, a vocal proponent of strict gun restrictions, blasted his congressional colleagues; accusing GOP lawmakers of being “afraid of the gun industry.”
“Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity,” said Murphy. “This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren’t public policy responses to this epidemic. There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference. It’s time for Congress to get off it’s a** and do something.”
