Nobody here would have paid for it with their own money (if they had been invited). It was a Congressional luncheon as part of the inauguration ceremonies. The Inaugural Committee paid for it, which means we did in some way, shape or form. I don't think there were any 'corporate sponsorships'. Nice menu, anyway (from the Joint Congressional Committee website):
