With his job in jeopardy, HHS chief Tom Price promises to repay charter costs

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.

"We're going to conduct a full review and we'll see what happens," Sanders told reporters. Travel by other top officials is also attracting scrutiny.

Price said the president had personally let him know of his displeasure. "As he has said publicly, he wasn't happy, and he expressed that to me very clearly," Price said Thursday evening on Fox News.

All his travel was legally approved by officials at Health and Human Services, Price said. It amounted to 10 trips with 26 different segments.

On Wednesday Trump had declared that he's "not happy" over reports that Price flew on costly charters when he could have taken cheaper commercial flights. Asked whether he'd fire Price, Trump said, "We'll see."

And only after he got caught. He was also routinely trading on info he got in committee on bills he knew were being drafted which would normally be insider trading but congress exempted thrmselves from those laws.

President Trump is trying to set a new tone for his administration. Price was caught following in the footsteps of the Obama administration. Not the direction President Trump wants to go.

Trump and his swamp monsters are so far out of touch with the average person,, how could they not be knowing their past . The gullible still defending his actions are like sheep going to slaughter!!!! Wait for the tax cut for him and his ilk. And the trumpsters will hail trump as the deficit skyrocketets ..

i think this is many administrations fault, this kind of thing has been happening for a very long time. blaming just trump, or obamma is about as ignorant as you can get. this person should be made to repay 100% of costs, and he should be terminated immediately.

I took another brief passage back here after another 45 days or so and it's the same old shit. Same trolls posting the same biased shit about the same wrong "facts" and without any grasp of the big picture.

No thanks!

I am just stating facts. This type of thing is not a one off thing with Price, it has been happening in previous administrations. Please try and keep up and not let you emotions get involved.
