The NFL is taking millions of our tax dollars and all they do for us in return is disrespect the military, veterans and our American flag. But now they will get to know the consequences of their actions.
A Republican Congressman from Florida, Matt Gaetz said enough is enough!
Rep. Matt Gaetz is calling on Congress to end the tax-exempt status of the NFL’s business office in the wake of controversy over players and team owners kneeling during the national anthem.
Gaetz, a Republican congressman from Northwest Florida, took a side on the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday to speak for the American taxpayer. Gaetz said that he gets it that players have a right to free speech, but Americans shouldn’t subsidize a sport whose players choose disrespect their country.
“When people kneel during our national anthem, they don’t simply indict the issue with which they have some particular grievance,” stated Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. “They indict our country, our service members, our first-responders, our founding fathers and the principles that made this country great.”
Thank God we have a member of Congress who is willing to take the media and the NFL head on!
Gaetz will likely face hell for this, but he is doing what is right for our military and the taxpayers of this country!
