Price traveled by private plane at least 24 times Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has taken at least 24 flights on private charter planes at taxpayers’ expense since early May, according to people with knowledge of his travel plans and a review of HHS documents. __________________ =================================================
Sorry if I seem a little bitter.. ..but w/o boring you w/ the details, my life is hanging by a thread due to FUNDING CURRENTLY DRIED-UP/Cut Off by The Department of Health & Human Services.
If you're still blissfully unaware of the situation facing aged & disabled Americans, perhaps you should follow this ANTI-Social Security/MediCaide/MediCare/HealthCare TREND
Like the Hurricanes, this Man-Made Disaster is already happening, & Few Even See It Coming,
And here's another one who enjoys taking 'free trips'.......
"Making matters slightly worse, Price isn’t alone. ABC News reports that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s travel is now facing scrutiny from investigators in his cabinet agency. This includes a previously unreported flight Mnuchin took on a government jet from New York to D.C. last month following a bizarre presidential press conference in Trump Tower."
"Democrats who requested the review cited a Politico report that Price took five private charter flights along routes and at times when commercial flights were available for a fraction of the cost. In a second article, the news organization reported that the Georgia Republican has taken at least 24 such flights since early May. The flights cost taxpayers a reported $300."------
24 flights since May at a (taxpayer) cost of $300,000?? Fire that bum!!
"It’s impossible for Price to fly commercial, because that could expose him to the unwashed masses — and nobody wants a repeat of what happened in West Virginia when a reporter had to be arrested for asking Price a question. Also, as one of the lower net-worth individuals in President Trump’s Cabinet (only $14 million, so little he can’t afford to dye his eyebrows gray to match the rest of his hair), Price needs the subsidized travel, just as he needed to enhance his meager congressional pay by trading stocks of health-care companies that had interests in legislation he pushed." (Dana Millbank, WaPo)
And this dude 'clamored' the loudest about D.C. wasteful spending? I recall him nearly genuflecting before Trump in that infamous first cabinet meeting. What a slimy a$$ki$$er! "
Now that the boss has found out about Tommy boy's extravagant 'pricey' trips, Tommy wants to write a check reimbursing the taxpayer for the expense of his own seat on those flights:
"By referring to costs associated with “my travel” and “my seat,” however, Price suggested he may not reimburse taxpayers for the total cost of all the flights, which includes charges for fuel, taxes and additional fees."
Apparently, Tommy likes to travel, all over the world!
"Politico reported later Thursday that Price also used military planes during trips to Europe, Asia and Africa earlier this year, costing taxpayers more than $500,000. According to the report, Price’s wife traveled with the secretary on the military aircraft while other people in his delegation flew commercial."
