Of course lil donny approves of Pharma Oligarchs accellerating their robery of the American People - it's what he's always been about.

 

He talks about his campaign promises but all he's doing is trying to hold on to the mindless lofo's who Putin bamboozled into voting for him, hoping at least one of them will wind up on the jury that tries him for Obstruction of Justice and Conspiracy with a hostile foreign power against the United States.

Without legislation there is only so much any President can do - he can affect change in government programs like Medicaid and Medicare.

 

The new proposal for lowering the cost of meds in Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage plans is in the rule making process now - comment period is not up until January 25,2019 - effective for CY 2020.

 

CMS 11/26/2018 - Contract Year (CY) 2020 Medicare Part D and MA Drug Pricing

 

Proposals have already been approved for lowering the cost of Medicare Part B drugs and beneficiaries should see their out of pocket cost for these go down.  

 

Proposals for Medicaid drugs pricing has also been activated - the government (state and Federal) will be getting a better rebate from pharma.

 

Government processes move slowly.  As far as I can determine, President Trump is working on this as best he can without Congress.

 

Now if the government gets lower prices in their public system, does that mean pharma prices will go up for the private systems - maybe, it is up to the private insurers to negotiate the price of drugs with pharma for their own formularies.

 

There really isn't just A PRICE for any drug in our country, well, at least the ones that are covered under some type of insurance, since both public and private systems deal with pharma on pricing in their own way.

 

 Politico 10/2622018 - Trump Medicare Drug Prices Plan

 

Sounds like many of you want President Trump to be a Dictator at certain times when it meets your wants and desires - no President in the U.S. can order a private company not to raise their prices but a President can put forth certain proposals to make those prices lower for public systems and the out of pocket cost for such beneficiaries.

 

Things more drastic than that are outside of the public systems takes legislation.

WASHINGTON — President Trump vowed on Friday to “bring soaring drug prices back down to earth” by promoting competition among pharmaceutical companies, and he suggested that the government could require drugmakers to disclose prices in their ubiquitous television advertising.
