Tom Price, M.D., secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), resigned today amid a nationwide controversy over his use of private jets for government travel, sticking the taxpaying public with a tab of $1 million or more.

Before the announcement of Price’s resignation, President Trump called him “a good man” but said “the optics” weren’t good.

Don Wright, director of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at HHS, was named acting secretary.

Speculation among political pundits abounds that, had Price been able to pull off repeal and replace of Obamacare, he would’ve survived with a few public slaps on the hand.
