RGF signs left/right letter questioning need for costly Los Alamos facility

The Rio Grande Foundation, Project on Government Oversight (POGO), National Taxpayers Union, and several other groups, submitted this letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee today.

POGO had this blog posting explaining the status of the debate and the issues at hand. Unfortunately (albeit not surprisingly), both Heather Wilson and Martin Heinrich who are running for New Mexico’s open US Senate seat are trying to “one-up” each other in supporting the costly boondoggle.

Heather Wilson has long been among the most liberal-spending Republicans while Heinrich came to Washington as a left-wing liberal and has gotten worse on spending each year.
