Press Release
HHS Secretary Wasted Taxpayer Dollars on Lavish Travel Expenses

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Today, Reps. Jamie Raskin (MD-08), Ruben Gallego (AZ-07), Ted Lieu (CA-33), Brenda Lawrence (MI-14), and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) called on Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price to resign from his position after reports that he repeatedly used taxpayer dollars to charter expensive private jets for his travel.

“At a minimum, the American people expect cabinet secretaries to lead with integrity, accept accountability, and use public resources responsibly,” they wrote in a letter to Price. “In light of your breach of the public trust, we write to urge you to do the right thing and immediately tender your resignation.”
