Trump Administration Issues Two Rules Aimed at Drug Prices

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said it was issuing two new rules that are aimed at lowering drug prices for the Medicare program, including one aimed at making sure pharmacy benefit managers pass after-market rebates onto seniors.

The second rule is aimed at aligning the prices paid in the United States to those paid in foreign countries, he said.

    This is something that NO COUNTRY in the world should have to put up with, let alone us!

    This idea came straight from Bernie Sanders Prescription Drug Price Relief Act:

    “Cut prescription drug prices in half, with the Prescription Drug Price Relief Act S.102 2019, by pegging prices to the median drug price in five major countries: Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan.”

    This is why the progressive left is important. Thanks, Bernie! There USED TO BE a progressive right, but they are long gone and forgotten.
