Oh, I see. So now the state is going to monitor and oversee every relationship that every corporation in the state has with every organization or group, and will base state tax policy on who that corporation gives discounts to and who they do not? Will they have different levels of taxation for every company depending on these factors? Or does this only apply to Delta? Or maybe it will only apply to every corporations' specific relationship with the NRA?

And if they are not going to apply this same rigor to every other corporation in the state with regards to their relationships with other groups, why not?

It's hard to say. But at this point and time, Lt Governor Casey Cagle cut off Delta's huge tax break for what they did to NRA members; that was a costly move by Delta.

So to clarify, you would be cool with a state setting different tax rates for companies based solely on whether or not the company gives a discount to a politician's favored organization? And you don't see a problem with that?

Georgia Legislators are big time NRA members I bet they get 20 to 50 million worth of donations from the NRA when it is election time.

So basically the NRA owns Georgia as well as Florida?

Clarity: Given the current system, Delta made a costly mistake by singling out NRA members.

So say politicians decide that any company in their state who doesn't give a discount to members of Planned Parenthood will be charged a higher tax rate, you'd be good with that?

Yeah, sure you would. You conservatives would be so outraged this board couldn't contain you.

This will help Nashville attract more business, as they do no mix ideology and the economy.

Ga acted like dumb rednecks on this issue.

Georgia politicians just signaled loud and clear that they will interfere with companies based on who said companies choose to do business with.
