Baby Your A Rich Man Too!

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price took trips this month on a private jet for official business in lieu of commercial flights.

First of all, full disclosure here, I’ve always wondered how political types in D.C, and elsewhere can get by travelling on commercial aircraft.
