  • GONE: Tom Price.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has resigned thanks to the scandal over his abuse of private and military planes for extensive travel.

That headline from John Harwood of CNBC.

What about Mnuchin, Pruitt and Zinke, other luxury travel abusers in an administration that was going to drain the swamp.

But several commentators have observed that — hypocritical as Price was given his congressional history as a putative federal budget hawk — the bigger scandal is his work to wreck Obamacare, if not by legislation by other means.  Trump can find someone suitable to continue the dirty work.

Democratic congressman had called for his resignation. Donald Trump had indicated his displeasure with Price over the controversy.
