President Will Sign 4 EOs to Address Drug Prices

I’m a little surprised to not see a thread; or did I miss it.

President Trump issued a handful of executive orders Friday that aim to lower prescription drug prices through a variety of methods, including allowing medications to be imported from other countries.

Insulin. Hopefully these orders will help. Of course to make big changes, Congress has to get involved.

No joy in Libville? No “attaboy!”?

hopefully this works better then his last plan which was “Lets just import cheap drugs from other countries”

Thank you for your concern.

Medicare will leverage its purchasing power to negotiate prices

That could be huge.

Especially when he expands Medicare.

Didn’t he already do this? And nothing came of it?

Sorry about that. Thanks for your concern.

At the end of your article:
“This order will not be signed until the end of August, which would give the country’s largest companies time to come up with alternative solutions.”

So, nothing. Except for plenty of time for pharm to come up with fake solutions and plety of time for gentlemanly dollars to cross greasy palms.

So you might want to edit thread title.

He’ll sign them.

Thanks.

:joy_cat:

It will be forgotten.

This was Kabuki for November. You thought he had signed them. That’s all this was. And you fell for it.

He could have just signed them today if he really wanted them enacted.

Maybe change it to “pretends to sign” or “acts like he’s going to sign” or “I thought he signed” for the title.

August is before November.

Done. I don’t want to get cancelled and I know the complaining will never cease.
