“Late Night” host Seth Meyerscalled out members of theRepublican Party on Thursday for rushing to pass yet another health care bill that would slash funding for Medicaid and not guarantee coverage for preexisting medical conditions.
Meyers contrasted the position with reports on how members of PresidentDonald Trump’s administration have been using military or private planes rather than taking commercial flights.
Earlier this week, Politico reported that Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price tookfive private flightsfor domestic work trips just last week. The news come on the heels of revelations that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchinasked to use a government planefor his European honeymoon. Such a plane would cost American taxpayers an estimated $25,000 per hour to operate. Mnuchin also used a military plane for atrip to Kentuckythat coincided with a viewing of the total solar eclipse, a rare event he later said he didn’t care about.
“So these guys think millions of people should have their health care ripped away from them, while they spend thousands on private jets and eclipse trips they don’t even care about,” Meyers said. “Could Republicans really be shameless enough to pass this monstrous bill?”
