How do you think american citizens would react?

The royal wedding is costing 34 million dollars and 32 million of the 34 is for security which is being paid by tax dollars. How would americans react considering the millions of resources that could benefit from that..especially when the family has means to pay it themselves.

  • I think we would definitely react poorly to it, and I do think that it is an expense that they should pay the bulk of themselves. That said, we have plenty of our own cases of frivolous spending popping up on a regular basis. This one just happens to be a big lump sum "in your face" incident where ours are more spread out, I think.

  • I would not be happy at all. That is terrible that the people of Britan have to pay for this.

  • The people of Britian actually only pay a small portion. About 90% of the cost was covered by the Royal Family who has income from many sources, that do not include tax dollars. They all own businesses and are paid for appearances, etc. The 10% that British tax dollars did cover is mostly for the military's paycheck that was there for security...but the Royal Family actually paid them a small bonus as well out of the family's pocket.
