    Job in jeopardy, HHS chief promises to repay charter costs
    https://verizon.yahoo.com/news/top-health-officials-travel-angers-trump-074437663--politics.html
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Fighting to keep his job, health secretary Tom Price said Thursday he'd write a personal check to reimburse taxpayers for his travel on charter flights taken on government business and pledged to fly commercial — "no exceptions."

    "I regret the concerns this has raised regarding the use of taxpayer dollars," Price said in a statement. "I was not sensitive enough to my concern for the taxpayer." His mea culpa came a day after a public rebuke from President Donald Trump.

    The repayment — $51,887.31, according to Price's office — was for the embattled secretary. Price did not address the overall cost of the flights, which could amount to several hundred thousand dollars.

    A former congressman from Georgia regarded as a conservative policy expert, Price said he hopes to keep his Cabinet seat. At the White House, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wouldn't go that far.



    Prompted partly by controversy over Price, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has launched a wide-ranging investigation into travel by Trump's political appointees. On Wednesday the committee sent requests for detailed travel records to the White House and 24 departments and agencies, dating back to the president's first day in office.

    Trips by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt have also drawn criticism.

    How many millions of dollars does Plastic Face Pelosi owe back to the American tax payers for the military flights for her, her family, and her friends, for their flights between Washington and San Francisco?

    She needs to repay that money also.......and immediately.

    *I heard that Trump is pissed at him over this. He will repay the money or he'll be unemployed......unlike Plastic Face.

    I'm glad Trump is calling him on this. Dems in the past admin flew Thousands of expensive flights, including chartering Air Force jets to shuttle to Europe. But that's expected- they were Dems. Trump ran on actually controlling costs...

    The only thing he's sorry for is getting caught.
    My state just fired a congressman for taking tax payer money for his own leisure.
    Tom should pay it back after he's kicked out of office

    Sebilius and Berwick were Obama Health Human Services Secretaries in Obama's Cabinet. Not State employees...

    I don't know why she would want to fly on a military flight that said a member of the military can fly for free if the plane has room and its going their way. Theres no flight attendants and cocktails.

    Controlling costs but that didn't keep him from flying to his golf course and all the SS people needed.

    I wasn't debating anything. I pointed out Obama's HHS secretaries outspent Price. And you think they represent a state.

    This is my favorite movie line:

    Fast and Furious. IRS used to harass enemies. Hillary's emails. Those are just three. There were about 7, I think.
