You don't feed a dog that bites your hand

Republicans got a lot of criticism for these remarks:
“I found it completely discouraging to find a bunch of corporate CEOs getting in the middle of politics,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., whined Monday. He fumed on Tuesday that his “warning, if you will, to corporate America is to stay out of politics.” Then he hastened to add: “I’m not talking about political contributions.” ...

Earlier this month, the Georgia House of Representatives voted to revoke a break on fuel taxes that benefits Atlanta-based Delta Airlines, which had criticized the state’s recent voting law. House Speaker David Ralston, R, explained: “You don’t feed a dog that bites your hand. You gotta keep that in mind sometimes.”

This is common sense, not corruption.

Corporations exist to make money, so I have to assume that Delta Airlines and others are making money out of their political meddling. They may be assuming that their opponents will not stop feeding the dog.

Stop feeding the dog that bites your hand.
