Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price announced his resignation today. He had been embroiled in a controversy over chartering private aircraft.
It is unclear whether his resignation was voluntary. I believe there was no alternative. Chartering expensive aircraft sets a bad example and plays into Democratic charges that the Trump administration is just a bunch of fat cats. He offered to refund the cost difference for his seat but not the staff that rode with him. I can understand an outsider making this mistake but Price has been in Washington for twelve years. He should have known better.
It is unfortunate because he is quite knowledgeable on our health care system. He is a doctor and did a lot of work on health care when in Congress.
