Over the weekend, Cagle said “conservatives are tired of being kicked around” when asked by Neil Cavuto to defend his push to halt consideration of a sizeable tax cut for Delta Airlines.

Fox News Insider added:

Cagle said his initiative was not ending a current tax cut for Delta, but instead taking a second look at whether one should be implemented through legislative action.

Cavuto warned of a “slippery slope” for Georgia, noting that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) have offered to help Delta relocate to the Empire State.

Last week, Hochul tweeted that she is a Delta Frequent Flyer and that her constituents appreciate the airline’s stance against the NRA.

Cuomo also ripped the NRA for having a “dangerous agenda” and seconded Hochul’s tweeted offer.

Delta executives, however, have told Cagle they are not considering a move out of the state.

Below is Cagle’s discussion with Steyn:
