Secretary Price Has Resigned From Health and Human Services by The Elephant's Child

Secretary Tom Price has resigned from Health and Human Services, and his resignation has been accepted by President Trump.

One of the most important notions of the Trump campaign was that of ‘draining the swamp.’ The nation’s capitol has become too expensive, too self-important, too unresponsive to the people. The Democrats in general, and the media in particular, have become consumed with hatred for the man who, in winning the election, has taken away their control in numbers, ideas, and power across the nation.

The Democrats not only confidently expected Hillary to win and continue their power in government, and to have their own way, but they were astonished to see the Trump victory echoing through the states down to the local level. They lost 13 seats in the Senate, 69 House seats, 910 State Legislative seats and 30 Legislatures. The Media no longer had powerful people in government eager for their attention.  From remarks from the media, it seems that the Obama administration was in constant contact trying (mostly successfully) to manage the news.

So you have probably not noticed that President Trump’s goal of making America great again involves cutting the cost of government. Cabinet officers and Congressmen who direct the work of the government have been excused for far too long for their carelessness with the taxpayers’ money. Secretary Price, who is also a wealthy man, may have thought nothing of chartering private jets for his travel, and billing it to the government, but the department’s inspector general did. It is unfortunate because Dr. Price is a good man, and was a good appointment as a physician,with long Congressional experience to Health and Human Services.

The media recently attacked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos who was flying on a private jet to her meetings all over the country, only to be terminally embarrassed to find that it was her own plane, and she was paying for it. So much will be made of the Price scandal. Other Cabinet members are looking closely at their own travel.

You will find that most of President Trump’s actions are based on ordinary common sense. Which is why he won the votes of a great many Americans who were fed up with “the swamp.” You will hear plenty about this ‘scandal’ and its reverberations.
