Obama's inauguration may cost more than $100M, sparking ire12/9/2012
Apparently, flack over his Hawaiian vacation plans wasn't enough to deter President Obama from planning an extravagant, three-day inauguration ceremony that has ignited the Twittersphere with accusations of waste. Although no dollar figures are out, the White House announced the celebration will include a service day Saturday, a private ceremony Sunday and a public swearing-in Monday, with a parade and balls. Many are infuriated over speculation the events may cost more than $100 million, along with a report that unlimited corporate contributions will be accepted. The figures are not exceptionally high, however. President Bush's 2005 inauguration cost about $115.5 million, and more than $125 million was spent on Obama's first one. [Source]
