Inauguration much too costly

SHARE Inauguration much too costly

So, the presidential inauguration will cost taxpayers $40 million this year. This takes place after Medicare funding was shortchanged, our educational institutions are failing their students, the deficit is sky-high, unemployment is up, medical insurance premiums are rising at a ghastly rate and benefits to military families have been slashed.

Such "upper-crust" priorities are a slap in the face to the average citizen.
