Trump on firing Price for taxpayer-funded private jet use: 'We'll see'

Edmunds PriceWork requirements exactly what OH needs to roll back the ObamaCare disaster Price says working toward declaring opioid crisis national emergency Declare a true state of emergency MORE is now having his travel expenses reviewed by the department's inspector general after reports emerged that he spent at least $400,000 in government funds in charter flights since May.

And Trump says he let Price know it.

During a wild and widely panned speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree in July, President Donald Trump famously threatened, tongue in cheek, to fire Tom Price if he did not help get Obamacare repealed and replaced.

Price has taken as many as 24 private flights in the past few months, costing the government an estimated $300,000.

Valentino Rossi, the dream becomes real in Aragon
Vinales was at the front of the second group, with Pedrosa all over him like a rash, as Rossi reeled in the leading Ducati. The second finish makes Pedrosa Rossi successfully positioned in fourth place in 2017 MotoGP standings.

In a letter addressed to Price, both the committee's top Republican, Rep. Trey Gowdy, and Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings, said they were "examining the extent to which non-career officials at federal departments and agencies either use government-owned aircraft for personal travel or private non-commercial aircraft for official travel".

"We'll see", Mr. Trump said.

The House Oversight and Government Reform committee is launching a wide-ranging examination of air travel by high-ranking Trump officials following reports about Price's trips. And I will tell you personally, I'm not happy about it.

Mr Price's trips have included flying from Washington DC to Nashville for the afternoon, where he spent less than 90 minutes at two scheduled events and had lunch with his son, who lives in the Tennessee city.

CVS moves to limit opioid prescriptions
CVS manages medications for almost 90 million plan members, making it one of the largest pharmaceutical chains in the U.S. The CDC reported patients received a 13-day average pill supply in 2006; that number skyrocketed to 18 days in 2015.

Price's office said the secretary's demanding schedule sometimes does not permit the use of commercial airline flights.

"I'm not going to comment on that because the President hasn't commented publicly", Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House adviser, told reporters.

The letter also accused Price of using insider information to trade healthcare stocks when he was a member of Congress. Price is a former GOP congressman from Georgia.

Price said Saturday he would stop flying private planes on official business while an internal review of the flights is being done.

Kylie Jenner is pregnant, according to reports
Sources additionally say 25-year-old Travis Scott , Kylie's beau, has likewise been telling his companions. According to TMZ , she started telling people at the Day N Night Fest in Anaheim, CA, earlier this month.

One Senior Republican aide, speaking before Trump's latest remarks, pushed back on the idea that Price would face any serious consequences for his use of private planes saying unless an email revealed Price asked deliberately not to fly "with the masses", the controversy would be a few days story.
