Business jet price

It’s a story that looked awful at the outset, and managed to get progressively worse very quickly. Just six days ago, Politico first reported that HHS Secretary Tom Price has been chartering private jets, paid for by American taxpayers, for official business. We learned soon after that the far-right cabinet secretary, who used to be outraged by stories like these, has taken at least 24 of these flights, at a cost exceeding $300,000.

Pressed for an explanation, Price initially didn’t want to talk about it. Then the excuse related to the recent hurricanes, which didn’t make any sense . His press office later said the chartered jets were about “making sure he is connected with the real American people,” which was hilarious, since almost all real Americans tend to fly commercial.

We were then told Price started taking private jets because he had a bad experience with a cancelled flight, which, as excuses go, wasn’t exactly persuasive.

"Secretary of Health and Human Services Thomas Price offered his resignation earlier today, and the President accepted," the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a statement.

Price in recent days had elicited bipartisan outrage over the cost of his air travel. Politico has reported that Price has cost taxpayers more than $1 million between his use of private planes for domestic travel and military jets for recent trips to Africa, Europe, and Asia.

In a letter to President Donald Trump on Friday, Price said he was submitting his resignation to allow the administration to "move forward without further disruption."
