Georgia Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle, a Republican threatens to stop Delta tax break over NRA decision
Georgia Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle has, vowed to “kill any tax legislation” that helps Delta unless it reverses decision to no longer offer discounts to National Rifle Association members. It is left to be seen if these corporations breaking from the NRA will affect the association bottom line or not, especially with such strong congressional support.
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.

The Disney corporation donates $1 million from ‘Black Panther’profit to the Boys & Girls Clubs
Disney has a lot to be thankful this month. With its highest grossing movie breaking every type of records of attendance imaginable, it wants to give back. Black Panther grossing $111.7 million from 4,020 theaters as early in the game is a game changer for the industry, and proves that people are more than willing to go to the theater to watch a film.
Bob Iger, Disney (DIS) CEO said in a press statement that it was “thrilling to see how inspired young audiences were by the spectacular technology in the film.”
“It’s fitting that we show our appreciation by helping advance STEM programs for youth, especially in underserved areas of the country, to give them the knowledge and tools to build the future they want,” he added.
The world has embraced Black Panther, which has obliterated expectations, broken records & shattered myths. Powerful storytelling that
touches hearts, bridges cultures, opens minds. Grateful to @Marvelstudios, #RyanCoogler & the cast and crew. #BlackPanther #WakandaForever
