No Springsteen, But Inauguration Will Still Cost

The pomp surrounding the inauguration of the President of the United States can carry a hefty price tag, from the glitzy galas to all those inaugural balls.

Think of it this way: It can cost about the same as 150 Bentley cars, several dozen yachts or some $20 million shy of the cash needed for a Boeing 737.

But taxpayers aren’t on the hook for the fun stuff — the balls and other celebratory events — and this inauguration won’t be as big as the last one for President Barack Obama.

Springsteen won't be there because he insisted on doing "Born in the USA". Obama doesn't think that's funny at all.

BUT --- we will still be on the hook for the ARMY of Secret Service agents, FBI, Homeland Security, and every police force in the area that will be called to protect this buffoon. He can take comfort, while he parties into the night, that the residents of New Jersey and New York, just got a couple of new generators and a load of firewood.
