Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price is taking an unprecedented number if privately chartered flights to conduct official business, taking a substantial financial toll compared to traveling commercially.
Politico reported Monday that Price opted for private travel as many as five times last week, including a stop in Philadelphia on a private jet from Virginia’s Dulles airport, which is just a 135-mile trip.
The cost of such travel can amount to tens of thousands of dollars above commercial traveling. Price, previously a Republican congressman from Georgia, often railed against government spending on frivolous perks, including private travel by members of Congress.
