No one wins here.


If Delta prices are higher because of losing their tax break then their competition wins.


The competition doesn't win. It's a better edge, but not a win, and at a political cost.

The workers, employees, and customers lose.



Abysha disagrees with you.

Taxes should never be used in a punitive manner.

Didn't we learn that lesson with Obama?

But I wasn't speaking to her.

I was responding to you, after you responded to me.

Georgia punishing the employees of Delta because Delta pulled support from the NRA is callous and dumb.



Or it could be seen that Delta themselves punished themselves and their employees when they took this cheap shot at the second amendment.

this is the great thing about capitalism.

the consumers will decide this issue ultimately.

if Delta is supported in this business decision, sales will go up.

if not, sales will go down.

Of course the public has a memory of about 6 months.

I doubt the politics of the situation will affect Delta's sales. In either direction.

If that's the case, Delta's actions are the worst business decision since New Coke.

Maybe it wasn't a business decision.

“Our decision was not made for economic gain and our values are not for sale,” Bastian wrote in the memo. “We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature.”

Corporations ONLY make business decisions.

Don't play stupid, you're not.

The NRA never claimed to not be political.

The National Rifle Association spent $31 million on the 2016 presidential campaign, $11.4 million in support of Donald Trump and $19.8 million in opposition to Hillary Clinton.

They took a shot at the NRA, a lobby for the gun industry, point out where the 2nd was affected?

That kind of money buys a lot more influence than a whopping million.

By their actions they are reinforcing the bandwagon sentiment against the second amendment, which affects it.

Or, Delta could have determined that it would pick up more passengers than it loses, due to cutting ties with the NRA.

Dicks Sporting Goods stopped selling assault rifles. That move helped the retailer, more than hurt it, according to:

I bet. Minus tax breaks considered?

We do live in the land of corporate welfare.

Debt is something to consider. Its not an abstract concept. Not really.

$40 million is 0.1% of Delta's expenses last year.

this is a massive abuse of power by a state government and it highlight's another huge issue which is these mega corp's get these discounts and us the small guys don't

don't like it either way

Is that the only rebate they get? Do they owe any bailouts?

If everyone is doing so well, perhaps they can pay back any money owed to the American people.
