Is this for real ??

Looks like Joey Slidebye has frozen one of Trump's policies to help people pay for certain medications that can apparently get rather expensive.

Can somebody debunk this ? 🤓

Was this plan part of something bigger that has a hidden agenda or motive or an oversized donut hole ? 😷



PHARMA: Biden Freezes Trump’s Lower Cost Insulin and Epinephrine Rule

Big pharma is smiling big right now. The big three insulin producers are Eli Lilly and Company, Novo Nordisk A/S, and Sanofi S.A., in which they dominate more than 90% of the world insulin market by value. After swearing-in, U.S. President Joe Biden’s HHS froze the Trump administration’s December 2020 drug policy that mandates community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients.

The rule was finalized in late December 2020. The drug rule was put in place to benefit patients who have a hard time paying for expensive insulin and allergy medication. Former President Trump campaigned on lowering the price of important pharmaceutical drugs like insulin, which is used to treat diabetes, and epinephrine. Diabetes afflicts over a quarter of Medicare beneficiaries and drives billions in Medicare spending every year. More than 20 million Americans have diabetes, in which the body fails to properly use sugar from food due to insufficient insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas.

Wonder if the usual suspects will just ignore this thread or will actually try and convince us this is somehow good.

With the widespread suppression of conservative content, we will be lucky to be able to confirm that it's "real". Sadly it will most likely be buried by liberal media, and it's probably just the beginning of the new censored state of America.

A question please? Knowing you won't answer, of course.
What authority does the federal government have over community health centers?

But what did Trump's order actually say?

Sec. 3. Payment Model on the Most-Favored-Nation Price in Medicare Part B. To the extent consistent with law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall immediately take appropriate steps to implement his rulemaking plan to test a payment model pursuant to which Medicare would pay, for certain high-cost prescription drugs and biological products covered by Medicare Part B, no more than the most-favored-nation price. The model would test whether, for patients who require pharmaceutical treatment, paying no more than the most-favored-nation price would mitigate poor clinical outcomes and increased expenditures associated with high drug costs.


So, let's crunch some numbers. That's what the order called for. It had nothing to do with "community health centers", it was about Medicare. Your source sucks.

Old racist Joe and his low IQ party (along with his low IQ ‘base’) have NO IDEA what policies they’re reversing at all

As long as it was something that President Trump implemented, they’re against it.

ESPECIALLY if it harms Americans!

That was revoked by Trump, in September. As I pointed out.

Sec. 5. Revocation of Executive Order. The Executive Order of July 24, 2020 (Lowering Drug Prices by Putting America First), is revoked.

Yes. Yes he is. And good riddance.

But the misinformation continues to flow in support of him.
