Tom Price was a man who couldn’t be trusted

The Washington Examiner makes the point that Price didn’t just screw up – repeatedly. It was worse than that.

(From The Washington Examiner)

  • Price’s pledge to never take charter flights again for business was a tacit admission that his previous cover story — that the flights were necessary — was bogus.

  • Paying back the value of an improper benefit you received only after you were caught only raises the question of what else you were hiding.

  • He made it sound like he was making the taxpayers whole for the charter jets, but he wasn’t. Covering the cost of only his own seat on the charters that flew only because he demanded them is not paying for what you broke.

  • Even after getting caught and pledging to pay for the charters, he was still mum about the military jets he flew overseas, presumably because they are pimpin’, until Politico reported it.

  • Price has a history of ethically questionable behavior, such as apparently making money off of stocks affected by his own legislative action.
