The WH has no shame.

INAUGURATION STICKING THE NATION'S CAPITAL WITH THE BILL: The Washington Post reports that the White House, breaking from precedent, is "refusing to reimburse the District for more of the costs associated with next week's inauguration." Instead, federal officials are instructing the District to make up for the $11.9 million difference by diverting money awarded in federal homeland security grants. That means more money for parties, parades and feasting and less money for "increasing hospital capacity, equipping firefighters with protective gear and building transit system command centers."
