HHS Secretary Tom Price Resigns Over Private Charter Flights
— Ace

So it goes.

President Trump for days has given indications he was considering firing Price over the plane controversy. Shortly before the brief White House statement late Friday, the president told reporters, "He's a very fine man, but we’re going to make a decision sometime tonight."

In 2013, it was revealed that Eric "Golden Wings" Holder used private charters for strictly personal travel -- and billed it to the US government -- but no one cared about that, except FoxNews.

1 Double standard I know but Price was ineffective...

2 Idiot. All he had to do was "deem" the trips necessary under Obamacare.

Posted by: Grump928(C) at September 29, 2017 12:55 PM (QQ+il)

6 Why did he have to fly on junkets to Europe and Africa to (try to) accomplish his sole task of repealing Obamacare?

7 "In 2013, it was revealed that Eric "Golden Wings" Holder used private charters for strictly personal travel -- and billed it to the US government -- but no one cared about that, except FoxNews." Two wrong's don't make a right. But three do.

8 It is a double standard, but we didn't vote for a 3rd Obama term. If Trump wants some populist points, make an Executive Order that no private planes in the Executive Branch besides Air Force One. These people aren't royalty. They're bureaucrats.

101 I also thought Price's offer to pay for his air travel was ridiculous. Right when I heard that I knew it was going to be bullshit. No way would he write that check. It turned out he was using a calculation for his seat only.

104 'I still think even bad Senators can be bullied.' Do it the way OCare was rammed through by the Dems--coercive threats and bribery. You can't vote for the bill? I'm sorry, there go your state funding and plum committee assignments. If we had a Majority leader to work with Trump rather than obstruct him, that's how it would go down.

105 Yes, and Pelousy did that every week when she was SOH. All the way across country. Not a peep fro the MFM. Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at September 29, 2017 06:13 PM (mpXpK) You expected me to fly commercial? With that riff-raff? Stand in line? Get patted down? Okay, that wasn't so bad. I haven't had foreplay that long since Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Germans.

108 Price and aholes like him need to learn when you work for Uncle Sugar your a "public servant". Put your life in a box and do your job and serve the public or stay home. Flying around like a damned fool doing nothing. Gravy Train is dog food not a way of life.

117 OT: The Tennessee church shooter left a note saying he did it in retaliation for Dylan Roof. Media silent, unexpectedly. Weasel Zip's Posted by: J.J. Sefton Yeah, he should have been executed on the spot. People like this need to be eliminated, not "cured" and released back into the public. Hasan especially should have been killed on the spot. Why isn't Tsarnaev dead yet? They are more like rabid animals than people. Did it ever occur to this genius that another Dylan Roof could continue the cycle of violence and use him as the justification? Lethal force was justified. He should have been executed on the spot.
