Politico: HHS Secretary Tom Price resigned Friday in the face of multiple federal inquiries and growing criticism of his use of private and government planes for travel, at a cost to taxpayers of more than $1 million since May.”
In his resignation letter to President Trump, Price said, “HHS is working aggressively to improve the health and well-being of all Americans.” He also said,
“I regret that the recent events have created a distraction from these important objectives,”
“Success on these issues is more important than any one person.” Price said.
I say you are damn right it is! You politicians are the biggest part of America’s problems wasting the taxpayer’s money. You should be ashamed of yourself but I guarantee you’re probably not. I’m guessing this has been going on for a while.
You got caught with your hand in the cookie jar. You had no right to be spending the people’s money on private airplane flights. You should’ve been flying coach like the rest of us. You should’ve been concentrating on doing the job you were hired for, but you were greedy and you wanted more.
It’s disgusting knowing that you were out there enjoying yourself on the taxpayer’s dime. The rest of us have to live in the real world. We don’t fly on private planes. We live within our budgets. You are part of the Swamp and I am so happy that you resigned today.
You were not trying to help ‘Make America Great,’ you were trying to help make Tom Price great. If you really cared about doing your job, you would’ve never taken those private flights. You gave Conservatives a black eye and it just pisses me off because now the liberals have new crap to talk about. They are going to throw this in all of our faces. We are targets and have enough to deal with.
You gave them the firepower with your stupidity. We now have to try and defend your bullsh*t, which I won’t! You’re wrong! We elected the President and he sent you to Washington D.C. to do a job and all you did was spend and waste the people’s money. Worst of all you made a fool out of yourself!
Today is a great day as far as I’m concerned. Because of your actions, the swamp continues to be drained. Hopefully, this will be a lesson for all the other wasteful politicians. The people are getting tired of hearing about politicians staying at luxury hotels and taking private planes. Americans want solutions to the horrible problems that we are facing today.
North Korea is getting closer to having nuclear weapons. Iran is attempting to build nuclear weapons. The Chinese are always on the move. Americans want change and want to feel safe again. We don’t need to worry about our hard earned money being ripped off by the government. American’s truly want to ‘Make America Great Again.’ So my message to you wasteful politicians, stop spending our money and do your damn job! There are no excuses!
