I think that cartoon above is about right…I mean, if states like Georgia are outright presenting themselves as a special interest group.
Georgia Republicans Vow to Kill Airline Tax-Cut Bill After Delta Ends N.R.A. Discount – The New York Times
The lieutenant governor in Georgia threatened on Monday to kill a proposed lucrative tax cut for Delta Air Lines after the company eliminated a discount fare program for the National Rifle Association over the weekend.
The move by Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who presides over the State Senate, immediately put the legislation in jeopardy and put him at loggerheads with other top state officials, including the governor, who had championed the tax deal. The showdown between one of Georgia’s most powerful politicians and one of the state’s largest employers was the latest clash in a national debate around guns after the deadly school shooting in Florida this month.
Uh, isn’t this man supposed to represent the people?
Well, it is obvious that none of those in the GOP represent the “people” that you think of….when we hear the word, people.
Now the cartoons:
