Georgia Lt. Governor Casey Cagle threatened Delta Air Lines on Monday over their plan to stop offering discounted fares to NRA members by saying he would kill legislation giving Delta a tax break. The panel discusses.

Stop punishing the NRA, or watch Republican lawmakers strike down a $50 million sales tax exemption on jet fuel, of which Delta would be the primary beneficiary.

“I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA,” Cagle tweeted. “Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.”
