Trump just sold us all out on drug pricing

Trump just sold us all out on drug pricing | 21 June 2017 | The New York Times reports that the Trump White House is about to put out an executive order on drug pricing, and it looks as if the whole thing were basically written by big pharma...According to the report and similar reporting from Kaiser Health News and Politico, a draft executive order includes nothing to curb prices. Instead, drug companies would be in line to get more power to charge monopoly prices overseas and be allowed to give even fewer discounts to hospitals with poor patients. And the administration is promising to roll back regulations that pharma has complained about. Nothing for the American people; everything for the American corporations...If you were hoping that the populist Trump from the campaign trail would keep some of the promises he made to his base, you can stop now.
