    Inauguration bill's

    I wonder what each state around DC is billing the govt for that tax payers have to suck up for all the added extra's and people that made the trip vs the norm? This is the first year I've read they have to replace grass on the lawns.

    Virginia will bill the federal government for $7 million in costs associated with the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

    Governor Kaine's office said Friday the state's largest expenditure was $3.9 million by the Virginia Department of Transportation. That includes $2.5 million for snow and ice removal on roads to speed traffic to Washington.

    Nearly $800,000 was spent on additional law enforcement by the Virginia State Police and $500,000 for free buses to shuttle inaugural attendees to mass transit.

    Kaine spokesman Gordon Hickey said the state expects to be reimbursed by the Department of Homeland Security.

    China made most of it since all those "Obama items" came from China with the "Made in China" tag on them in clear daylight.

    People around here were renting their homes upward to 10k for the week. Hotels were booked to capacity months in advance at 2500/night in some cases.
