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, Northwest Florida’s Republican congressman, took to the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday and said players have a constitutional right to free speech, but Americans shouldn’t subsidize a sport whose players act unpatriotically.

“When people kneel during our national anthem, they don’t simply indict the issue with which they have some particular grievance,” said 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.”
