‘Unrigging the system,’ Trump signs executive orders to lower prescription drug prices

‘Some very rich people are not going to like me very much today,’ Trump says

By Nicholas Ballasy

President Trump said Friday that he’s “unrigging the system” with executive orders aimed at reducing the prices of prescription drugs in the U.S.

One of the executive orders would provide discounted insulin and EpiPens to low-income Americans, which Trump said would bring the cost down to “pennies a day.”

The president explained that community health centers would have to pass the savings they receive on the drugs onto their patients.

Another order would allow “states, wholesalers and pharmacies” to safely import prescription drugs from Canada –a change Trump said the Obama-Biden administration wasn’t able to make

“We’re standing up to the lobbyists and special interests,” the president said in a White House event. “I’m unrigging the system that is many decades old.”

A third order seeks to prevent “middle men and women” from “making a fortune” on drugs for Medicare patients, the president said. The rule would pass on the “billions” that distributors receive on drugs from pharmaceutical companies as a way to reduce the price for patients. 

“Some very rich people are not going to like me very much today,” Trump said.

Trump explained that the fourth executive order, if implemented, would target the issue of how the exact same drugs cost more in the U.S. compared to other countries such as Germany. Trump said Medicare would be required to purchase drugs at the same price other countries pay.

My Intentions

In writing or posting on this blog I try to inform people on current issues or people in the news, or topics that are up front in peoples’s minds.  That is one reason I post from different web pages or blogs.  I want different perspectives and analysis.  Thanks for following.  I hope you enjoy.

Crazy World

We live in a wild and crazy world. The Middle East is always one spark away from all out war, Russia and Ukraine, chaos in Africa, protest in France, N. Korea, and of course China.

Interesting that all the NATO leaders may publicly say they are not fond of President Trump, they sure do like to have their picture taken with him. Trump is always the most popular leader at all these events. Could it be they recognize a real leader when they see one?

What we need in this world is more Donald J. Trump and less of the soy boy leaders in Europe. If war broke out or disaster hits, it won’t be France, or Germany or Canada that responds. It will be the good guys in white hats from the United States of America. Pay up, sit down and shut up soy boy.
