The $170 million Inauguration

Even ABC is noticing it now.

So the word is that Obama's inauguration is going to cost more than Bush and Clintons' combined. But what's the problem, right? He's just stimulating the economy. And a lot of the money has been donated.

But maybe that's the problem.

The biggest group of donors were none other than the recently bailed-out Wall Street executives and employees.

"The finance sector is well represented, despite its recent troubles," Ritsch said. "Those who worked in finance still managed to pull together nearly $7 million for the inauguration."

The donors will get some of the best seats in the house for the inauguration, as well as admittance to some of the best balls and other events.


So, $170 million, and a good chunk of it donated by some of the people who just got a big chunk of taxpayer money to bring their companies/industries back from the brink.

...

Does this bother you at all?
