According to the Washington Post, Shulkin mixed personal and official travel on his way to a meeting in July with Danish and British officials to discuss veteran’s health issues. The entourage included Shulkin’s wife, Merle Bari, his acting undersecretary of health and her husband, his chief of staff and an aide. Shulkin’s predecessor, Robert Macdonald, spent more than two years at the post without taking foreign work trips, according to the Post. Shulkin’s means that now five Cabinet members are being scrutinized for questionable travel choices. Health and Human Services Secretary Thomas Price, Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke have been slammed for public costs involved with shuttling them around on expensive charter or military aircraft when cheaper but less convenient options are typically available.
WHY TRUMP ACTUALLY DEMANDED TOM PRICE'S RESIGNATION 10/2/2017 Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price resigns amid a corruption scandal, but Trevor suspects his departure had more to do with his inability to repeal Obamacare.

The Tax Money Trump Has Spent on Golf Carts Could Have Bought 54,095 School Lunches We’re paying for the president’s golf obsession, bigly.
President Donald Trump may want to cut the federal budget and says he wants to return tax dollars back to the American public. Even so, he sure does love to spend your money on his personal pastimes.
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Secret Service reportedly spent $7,470 on golf cart rentals for its agents and the president while at Trump's private Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, according to federal purchase orders reviewed by USA Today. In total, the publication reports that the Secret Service has spent $144,975 on golf carts in the 11 months since Trump assumed office.
Golfing is such an integral part of Trump’s routine — he's been on 81 trips to golf properties while in office — that the Secret Service had to sign a ongoing contract with Golf Cart & Utility Distributors, a Florida cart rental company, which now amounts to $69,430.
The carts seem to be some kind of necessity, given Trump’s distaste for exerting any sort of physical force. In May, The New Yorker reported that “other than golf, [Trump] considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy.” It seems that Trump now considers walking too strenuous — he even thinks “rallies are a form of exercise,” according to Axios.
At $144,975, government expenditures on golf carts for the president are more than double the $66,000 remaining in the dwindling National Public Health Emergency Fund, the war chest the administration will be using in its fight against the opioid epidemic. As well, the outlay for the vehicles is more than twice the $51,220 average salary of a civil servant or the $59,427.50 starting pay of a Secret Service member.
