You, sir, are an impostor: These 'business leaders' hide self-serving agendas

The author alleges that some business leaders in Nevada push for higher taxes and other legislation with a self-serving, hidden agenda. In the gaming and mining industries, some executives and their lobbyists push for higher taxes but only impose the taxes on other groups and individuals and not themselves. He is also critical of Associated General Contractors (AGC) leader John Madole, who will indirectly benefit from increased taxes on diesel and gasoline by providing the government with more revenue to commission AGC members for construction contracts.
