Tom Price Still Owes American Taxpayers At Least $348,112.69

In response to HHS Secretary Tom Price’s announcement that he will reimburse taxpayers for only a small fraction of the money he wasted on private jets, DNC spokesperson Daniel Wessel released the following statement:

“This response is an insult to American taxpayers. Price wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayers’ money, but instead of reimbursing the full cost of his flights, he plans to return only a small fraction of what he spent for his seat on the plane. It’s not just Price, though: Trump has consistently wasted taxpayer dollars on trips to his properties, and we’ve repeatedly seen headlines of other members of Trump’s cabinet taking advantage of American taxpayers for their own gain. Trump is not fighting for the forgotten man; he is stealing from them.”
