TRUMP AGENDA - Drug Pricing Scam

Without allowing Medicare to negotiate pricing for ALL drugs, nor allowing Americans to purchase drugs from other countries, this proposal is a meaningless scam.

My 'better' suggestion:  Pass a law that mandates that pharmaceutical companies CANNOT charge more for their drugs than they do in any other nation in the world (except for UN special programs).

"HHS Secretary Azar: Trump’s drug prices proposal is better than campaign pledge" PBS NewsHour 5/14/2018


SUMMARY:  President Trump laid out his long-awaited plan for tackling drug prices on Friday.  Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar joins Judy Woodruff to fill in the details about the plan, including how it will affect prices under Medicare, why the administration is calling on pharmaceutical companies to list their prices and more.
