In the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14th, with Americans clamoring for action – any action – from a Republican Party effectively owned by the NRA, businesses began stepping up where the GOP wouldn’t.


Delta Airlines boldly ended their discount for NRA members, a move that prompted Georgia Republicans to kill a tax break for jet fuel worth about $50 million, of which the company had previously taken advantage. Republican Governor Nathan Deal, also a Republican, signed the bill into law today.

Delta’s CEO, Ed Bastian promptly released a memo, explaining:

“Some elected officials in Georgia tied our decision to a pending jet fuel tax exemption, threatening to eliminate it unless we reversed course,” Bastian wrote. “Our values are not for sale.”

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Delta may not have been for sale, but Republicans certainly are. The powerful gun lobby has donated millions to the GOP, who have shown their allegiance by unfailingly siding with the NRA over the safety of American children.

A movement to replace Republicans with representatives who actually work for their own constituents, led by the students of Parkland, Florida, has ignited the country, leaving Republicans especially vulnerable with midterms fast approaching.
