It sure didn’t take long for Spaceport America to start costing taxpayers more than originally promised. Governor Bill Richardson’s generous gift to British billionaire, Sir Richard Branson, is the gift that just keeps on giving.
Last year, Governor Richardson spent $100 million of our hard earned tax dollars on a billionaire’s dream instead of new schools for our children. This year, he wants to to take 10% of the state’s road budget and build a nice ramp for Sir Branson. This is on top of the increased local gross receipts tax being trust upon Southern New Mexicans.
Oh yeah, this trip just keeps getting better.
