Skip to comments.The Obama Inauguration Brought To You By Corporations and Unions

Obama's 2009 inauguration was bolstered by the feelings of "hope and change" that boosted the President to electoral victory. His official inauguration committee eschewed corporate donations back then, but times have changed dramatically.
The Presidential Inauguration Committee set a goal of raising $50 million for Barack Obama's second inauguration, but have turned to big corporations and big labor unions in order to make it there. AT&T, Bank of America, FedEx, Microsoft and Coca-Cola are all on the official list of inauguration donors this year. Joining those corporations are the American Federation of Government Employees, the American Postal Workers Union, the International Association of Fire Fighters, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the Painters & Allied Trades Union, the Sheet Metal Workers Union, the United Association, and the United Food & Commercial Workers Union.
the inauguration is asking for up to $1 million in contributions per donor. In 2009, the inauguration committee placed a $50,000 limit per contribution. Now, as the Washington Times reports, asking price starts at $75,000.

People are so stupid. $50,000,000? How can a party cost anywhere near that much? I wonder how much Chelsea gets to take home.
I’m watching it now. I expect the rapture at any moment.
These people say they are in financial trouble. They want a bail out.
If they can waste money on Oboma, they don't need any of our money. No bail out. Mail 5 days a week is fine.
THIS is why we NEVER buy the union label if we can help it, or shop at a store with union employees. We don't even dine out because of SEIU. We cook in, or in the summer, cook out.
Doesn't your toilet bowl need to be cleaned?
