    Default Georgia House Votes To Strip Delta Of $35 Million Tax Credit

    The Georgia state House passed an amendment Wednesday that would strip Delta Air Lines of a multimillion-dollar tax break after the company blasted the state’s new election laws.

    Republicans in the state House, angered by Bastian’s sudden flip on the election overhaul, hit back at the company by voting to strip it of a jet fuel tax break worth over $35 million a year, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    None of this is going to help the GQP. All they're doing is begging for Democrats to wipe them out next year.

    We will vote according to whatever stupid rules they throw at us...can they say the same for their constituents, who didn't even bother to show up for them in January?

    And they can’t threaten to relocate because basically they can’t.

    This, nor the vote suppression bill, is going to save the GQP in this state.

    Georgia is gone for Conservatives, just like Virginia and Colorado before.

    Try moving an airline hub that size to another state...not very easy - Delta has no leverage here. Delta wanted to play politics, now they’re ‘playing politics’. Hope they enjoy it!

    Yeah, that only works when you have bureaucrats and judges making unconstitutional changes to election laws.

    Yeah, like they did in Georgia.

    As I said, we are gonna vote no matter what.

    If we have to stand in line for 8 hours, we're gonna stand in line for 8 hours.

    If we can't get food and drink 100 feet from a polling place, we'll just get it 101 feet from the polling place.

    If we have to produce an ID to vote by mail, then that's what we're gonna do.

    If we can't vote on Sundays, we'll vote on Saturdays.

    The point is that Democrats have nothing but experience in this state when it comes to overcoming attempts at suppressing the vote, but Conservatives do not have that experience so they are the ones these laws are going to harm most.

    This law isn't going to increase turnout for the GQP, and the GQP lost on turnout in November 2020, and January 2021.

    DFW- another huge International Airport just builds their own hub- like the American Airlines hub! PROBLEM SOLVED!

    Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport is Centrally located!

    Probably makes better sense money wise too!

    They wouldn't be walking away from a market, as they already have flights out of Atlanta and that would not change.

    We are talking about where they headquarter! Only a fool would not headquarter out of TEXAS!

    I wonder if Delta's corporate headquarters might be welcome somewhere else.

    I've been to Georgia a few times.
