Did he backtrack? Medicare will negotiate with drug manufacturers?

This is 2 days ago. So how can you make your post?

“We’ll have much lower prices at the pharmacy counter and it’ll start taking effect immediately,” Trump said in a speech in the White House Rose Garden. “We’re also increasing competition and reducing regulatory burdens so drugs can be gotten to the market quicker and cheaper.”


So Trump is tackling the issue, as promised.

It was all about prescription medicine, his comprehensive plans, his Secretary that is leading it went out with Sarah Sanders afterwards to the press, stated 90% of it all can be done through executive action.

He is going to cut out the middle man saving billions that can get passed to the consumer. Get rid of existing penalties to pharmacists who give advice to consumers on how to save money, rebates ect which is a sick result of all the lobbyists. Have the FDA force drug companies to state their prices in their ridiculously long tv commercials where they cite how many different ways their drugs can kill or maim you. Lots more stuff about how unfair a pill made in the same factory in the same package costs pennies to the dollar in other countries compared to when it is sold in the US, followed by a stern Trumpian "No More!".

All kinds of good stuff that will have the Left crying at the sky from here till the midterms.

Is he actively working on the prices of drugs? Who cares how he does it. He is tackling the issue, and should be graded by his performance. I don't understand why you aren't praising him for doing something when no President has until now.

I promise you liberals, you can praise him for taking these steps while also talking about how you would like him to go further.

I just read it. His plan doesn't impact any plan at all for the future to negotiate pricing, in fact, deleting the middle man is a necessary first step. Get the middle man out so you can negotiate with the actual seller. Regardless of how you want to see drugs negotiated what Trump is doing is the necessary first step.

Sounds like his usual arm waving to me.

However, the official said there will be other proposals to increase competition in Medicare, likely using private sector players rather than Medicare directly negotiating prices.


Looks like there will be negotiation, just within the framework of the open market rather than directly from a federal program. I'm failing to see how it's a campaign promise broken when he's doing what he said he'd do, just not the way the Dems want it done?

But, but. That's what the Democrats want to do.

The Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Act of 2017 would finally turn this rhetoric into law by allowing the government to negotiate directly with drug companies to lower prices for Medicare beneficiaries, much like the VA and Medicaid do today.

And that's bad. Right?

This isn't a want to do game, Trump is going to whip out his Executive Pen and take action.

The politicians had decades, they only liked taking the lobbyists money.

Awesome, so he is doing more than any President before him on the subject and all you can do is criticize before his plan is finalized and we have any data on it's effectiveness.

No broken promise, his promise was to lower drug costs, he appears to be doing it.

only 2 years in. more promises kept then any other pres, yet you want to jump on him for not getting to that one yet...

looks like your thread was quite premature. perhaps he somehow knows the talking points put out against him ahead of time so he can get out ahead of them, course, this means phage is receiving the 4 am talking points too. interesting....

Trump actually addressed this 2 days ago, before Phage made this thread.

Amazing, and entirely destroys the OP's premise.


Looks like we can chalk this up to yet another promise KEPT by President Donald J. Trump

Who I will be casting a vote for in 2020, as well as bulk-donating to all pro-Trump pro-liberty pro-BOR candidates.

The only promise Trump made in regard to prescription prices was to bring them down. One of the parts of his seven-point healthcare plan was to "break down barriers that prevent drug providers of less expensive, safe products from entering the free market. And consumers should be allowed access to safe, imported drugs from overseas". He campaigned on it, he spoke about it in his state of the union address, and so on.

What he didn't campaign on, nor promise, was this so called "major campaign promise". This is a clear example of repeating what one reads, which just so happens to be the democrat narrative.

Sounds more like the usual "OMG Trump must be cursed" horsecrap to me. Carry on, the tears, anguish, and flop sweat sustain us.

Hahaha. Turns out this story was fake news.

Hhahahahahaha....listen to that FAKE NEWS and this is what happens.

Yet some of you are still defending McCain and his 'brain-dead' actions...like the thumbs down on repealing OCare.

Finally, this is the ART OF THE DEAL. How many times does this have to be pointed out?
