Welfare Bums Aren’t All Poor- Some, Like Mnuchin, Are Very Rich

The secretary of the treasury wanted a free jet ride at taxpayer expense for his honeymoon.  That’s because he’s a bum with his hand out wanting other people to pay for things he wants.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and his wife are making headlines — again.

Citing sources, ABC News reported Wednesday that Mnuchin requested a U.S. Air Force jet to take him and his wife, Louise Linton, to France, Italy and Scotland for their summer honeymoon.

The matter, according to ABC News, sparked an inquiry by the Treasury Department’s inspector general.

The former investment banker and movie producer requested a military jet that costs about $25,000 per hour to fly, ABC News reported.

A Treasury Department spokesman told ABC that Mnuchin requested the jet to make sure he had a secure line of communication during the trip, but ultimately decided the request was “unnecessary” after other communication methods were deemed available.

“The Secretary is a member of the National Security Council and has responsibility for the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence,” a Treasury Department spokesman said in a statement, ABC News reported. “It is imperative that he have access to secure communications, and it is our practice to consider a wide range of options to ensure he has these capabilities during his travel, including the possible use of military aircraft.”

Please.  He’s going on his honeymoon and he didn’t want to pay for the flight.  Because he’s a deadbeat.  Rich people don’t get that way by spending their own money.  They spend yours.
