President Trump Signs Executive Order Lowering Drug Prices

, , 6 Comments

A huge win for Americans who buy pharmaceutical drugs.

President Donald Trump has officially signed an executive order LOWERING drug prices for Americans to put “America first,” according to a document released by the White House. The order will make it easier for more Americans to get access to the drugs they need. It will also encourage free-market competition for drug companies instead of allowing monopolies.

Executive Order Signed

In a statement released by President Donald Trump, Trump blasted current drug prices in America for being unfair, too expensive, and dangerous for Americans’ health:

“In addition to being unfair, high drug prices in the United States also have serious economic and health consequences for patients in need of treatment.”

So now, going forward, America will now only purchase important drugs at market value instead of inflated values making pharmaceutical company owners richer:

“It is the policy of the United States that the Medicare program should not pay more for costly Part B prescription drugs or biological products than the most-favored-nation price.”

And according to the press release, President Donald Trump is ordering the new rule to be put in place effective immediately:

“To the extent consistent with law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall immediately take appropriate steps to implement his rulemaking plan…”

    I WISH HE HAD DONE IT BEFORE I BOUGHT MY ELIQUIS THIS MONTH THAT COST ME $327 FOR 90 DAY SUPPLY. MY NATURTHROID MEDICATION IS NOT EVEN COVERED UNDER MEDICATE AND THAT COST ME $164 EVERY 90 DAYS. JUST BECAUSE IT IS NOT A SYNTHETIC
    LIKE SYNTHROID OR LEVOTHYROXINE AND IS A NATURAL MEDICATION WITH A RX FROM A DOCTOR THEY STILL DO NOT COVER IT, NOT RIGHT. JUST THINK $500 EVERY THREE MONTHS JUST FOR TWO MEDICATIONS THAT MY LIFE DEPENDS ON. THAT’S $2000 A YEAR.

    After waiting over 3 years for Congress to do their duty to the American People, Trump finally signs an Executive Order.
    Big Pharma proves that we have the best Politicians that money can buy.

    The Democrats have been pushing for Socialized Medicine while allowing the prices to go up. Is that hypocrisy or what?
    Open your eyes to what they do, think about what they say, and you will “walk away” or run from the corrupt Socialist Democrat Establishment Elite.
