‘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.

Health care to die for: Bloomberg promotes ‘Death Panels’ – WND

Remember those death panels embedded in the original Obamacare plan? Those government bureaucrats who would decide what health care people could get – and when they would say, “that’s enough, no more care”? Looks like that’s what Democrat presidential primary candidate Michael Bloomberg would like.

Democratic Debate Fiasco

I must confess that I had better things to do last night than watch the Democratic giveaway and pander show. We all know what they said, however I did see from news clip and commentary what happened. Let me just say that no one, I repeat no one on last night’s stage or tonight’s stage can possible beat Donald Trump. The democrats are too far out of the mainstream of even liberal policies.

That is why I foresee a possible stealth candidate appearing sometime just before the first caucus or primary. Someone who has a type of star power or name recognition that would transcend the others. Others have hinted at this and I totally agree. There is no way this bunch makes a run against Trump. If they do we will know that the polling numbers show a landslide for Trump and whoever runs is just a sacrificial lamb. And if you can stand it, there is another debate tonight. I’ll be watching my favorite baseball team.
