TRUMP AGENDA - Drug Pricing Plan

"Will Trump’s drug prices plan make a difference for patients?" PBS NewsHour 5/11/2018

NO.  It's missing key ingredients.  Like allowing Medicare to negotiate pricing, or allowing Americans to buy drugs from Canada.


SUMMARY:  President Trump revealed his blueprint to lower prescription drug prices as he railed against the pharmaceutical industry for making them unaffordable.  Under his plan, "American Patients First," Trump proposes making it easier for generic drugs to enter the market and requiring drug makers to list prices in advertising.  John Yang gets reaction from David Mitchell of Patients for Affordable Drugs.
