Trump Says He'll Sign Order Cutting Drug Prices 'Very Soon'

President Donald Trump said he plans to sign a “very inclusive” health-care plan “very soon” ... “I want what’s right for the people,” (I love the people) he said at a press briefing in Florida on Friday. “We’re going to bring our drug prices down to levels that nobody ever thought possible.”

He’s been seeking to repair his standing on health-care issues, particularly with senior voters. Polls have shown sentiment is souring over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and efforts to eliminate the Affordable Care Act without having a ready replacement.

McLaughlin & Associates, a consulting and polling firm, produced a memo on July 29 for Republican leaders saying “You can’t beat something with nothing. We now have an alternative that is a winning solution — one that (will receive) broader and deeper public support than Medicare for All.”

While he provided few details, Trump announced plans for executive orders to lower prescription drug prices under Medicare by linking them to rates paid in other countries and allowing Americans to buy medication imported from Canada.

Trump plan: ‘Winning Solution’ (details coming ‘soon’)

4. I thought he was supposed to role out his new Health Care proposal tomorrow . . .

Wasn't that what he promised in an interview two weeks ago?

7. So drug prices should go up by 150% to start with rapid increases and supplies unstable...

With Jared controlling the stockpile.

11. "Very Soon" "Two Weeks" "We'll See"

In Trump's words, "never".
He's as lazy as he is dishonest and despicable.

13. Why? He's figured out a way to overpay for everything else.

Masks, Ventilators, chlorosnake-oil, PPE, his wall, migrant imprisonment.
He is most generous passing our money to his chosen pals and a real skinflint when it’s his dime.

14. He is always taking credit for things as if they've happened then you never hear about it again

Sort of like him dealing with N Korea. Shows up for a photo op and declares victory. Walks away to next BS thing.

16. He can't lower drug prices. Only congress can do that.

And when the Prescription coverage was created for Medicare it is forbidden by law.
