    Job in Jeopardy, HHS Chief Promises to Repay Charter Costs

    https://www.usnews.com/news/politics...l-angers-trump

    "Price's travels were first reported last week by Politico, which said it had identified a couple dozen charter flights at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Cheaper commercial flights were a viable option in many cases."

    Let's see if Price is the next to go.

He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    For a party that supposedly wants less government and, one would assume less government waste, this does not bode well.


    Whatever came of the Pelosi jet thing from a few years ago? Have we flip-flopped on that one yet?

    After 9/11, government officials in the line of succession to the presidency are under much higher levels of security.

    Some might see it as a good thing that Trump is willing to quickly fire or force the resignations of these people, but I thought he was a businessman who knew how to hire the right people. His turnover rate in under a year is awfully high. But, then again, he was supposed to be the best negotiator and look at what happened to healthcare reform among his own party which has the majority in both houses.

    Yeah, and it looks like the tax plan will also fail.
