Price, staff should pay
So, Health and Human Services Director Tom Price is going to refund to the American taxpayer the money he spent to take private planes on trips for which officials of previous administrations took much cheaper commercial flights.
Is he doing it because it was wrong to fly private on our dime?
Or is he doing it because he got caught?
Of course, he’s only paying for the cost of his seats on private jets, not those of his staffers. Total cost, according to Politico, was more than $400,000.
So, will he order his staff to pony up, too?
Price can afford to pay. His net worth as of 2014 was $13.6 million.
What’s the net worth of his staffers, who were only tagging along with the boss?
Pony up, boys. You all got caught.
