Have We Had Enough Yet?
Our county council and legislative leaders want to make sure that if a nonprofit wins the new M&O contract to run LANL, it has to pay the same gross reciepts tax as a for-profit. Presumably, because Los Alamos County has gotten used to all that extra money to build splash pools, indoor ice rinks, and expand the golf course.
According to the LA Daily Post and Forbes Magazine, Los Alamos is sixth richest of the 3007 counties in America. So on that note, can someone please remind me why the taxpayers from those thousands of poorer counties, some of whom don't have a pot to piss in, should be dipping deeper into their wallets to fatten our well off lifestyle courtesy of an extra GRT imposed if a nonprofit wins the National Lab Lottery? Just asking...
