    The leader of Health and human service has resigned after many complaints regarding luxury and military jet travel. 4 others are also being questioned about past or requested travel.

    I guess now there will be less Health and Human services being provided.

    This is the same guy that railed against government fraud, waste and abuse. Imagine that, once he hated it, then he embraced it. So much for Trump draining the swamp. I hope Trump voters are waking up. But I won't hold my breath.

    And get this, one of his appointees said the reason for using private jets was security reasons, what? personal security? If they weren't disliked so much, they could fly using commercial airliners, yes?

    Remember at the Boy Scouts rally in July where trump made a joke about firing Price if Price did not deliver a HealthCare bill.

    Think for a moment, imagine if your boss got you on stage in front of live audience of thousands plus the national TV\News, and he made an over the top joke about firing you if you did not achieve a goal is out your control. Would you think he was joking, or would you think he's threatening you, and he is bold enough to threaten you with millions around the nations watching.

    Yes the "security" of flying with private jets is the avoidance of having to mingle with the public in an airport concourse or lounge. Like, "only the little people fly commercial". Who are the elites?

    However, the real reason Trump "fired" Price is that he couldn't get repeal and replace done. I don't think Trump cared one iota of how his cabinet members flew. He likes them to appreciate the good life and the perks that it brings.

    However, he does care about the optics of pretending to drain the swamp.

    I guess people are forgetting the biggest offender; it is the "7 year old" leader of this country. He has cost more than $100 million flying around for being in Mar a Lago as well his golf courses and useless trips to boost his ego, like "primary rally's" while already President. Fire the S.O.B (see my past thread about this) Talking about hypocrites.

    Fact: Trump has spent more American tax dollars on travel in his short tenure than Obama spent in his entire 8 years as president. Again, so much for being conservative and draining the swamp.

    Someone please tell Trump voters about that fact I just posted, so they'll get the idea that the guy they voted for is a bigger liar than anyone on this planet.

    Yep that is exactly what I think happened.

    Conspiracy theory: trump let it be known within his very tight circle of trusted individuals he wanted Price gone and was looking for something to fired Price. After weeks\months, someone leaks detailed info about Price's travels expensive. trump fires Price and looks good for doing it.

    It's life taking it's natural order. A strong rich white man in charge just like God wants it to be. Know what strong wealthy white men do ? Anything they want.

    Trump probably fosters an attitude of we are the best of the best and entitled to it all. Now if it's negative he will get rid of him for not delivery a replacement for healthcare and getting it all wrapped up.

    This president must be replaced as soon as possible. The mindset of far too many has been damaged by watching this farce of a presidency.

    Mr. Mueller please hurry this along.

    Tell him he can't golf every single weekend, he'll quit.

    He's already getting pretty annoyed by these national disasters and states\territories needing federal assistance. He didn't sign up for that kind of stuff.

    Yesterday MSM reported that Price may have burned up to $1M in private jet travels, taxpayer dollars, where's that plug to drain the swamp thing? This presidency is costing taxpayers and voters tremendously in money and reputation of the office which he holds.

    Imagine how Fox "News" would have covered this if Hillary's Health Secretary did the same thing...

    Betsy DeVos is not popular. Thus it has cost several millions of dollars for US Marshals to protect her in the first part of the year. Here's more details.
