The media might be transfixed on the waning COVID panic and lingering protests, but the president continues to move mountains in Washington. He promised to fix the many broken and bloated programs he inherited from Obama and others.
One by one, this administration has been making progress. Despite opposition from the media, lobbyists, Democrats, and turncoats in his own party, Trump is making good on his promises to America.
Now, he’s about to sign, not one, but three executive orders that will help Americans pay less for prescription drugs:
U.S. President Donald Trump will sign three executive orders on lowering prescription drug prices, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Thursday.
“This president is going to do three different executive orders that will substantially make sure that the average American gets to pay less for their prescription drugs,” Meadows said in an interview on Fox Business Network.
President Trump promised to fix Obama’s devastating impact on our health care system. He almost repealed Obamacare in 2017, only to be blocked by Congress (John McCain in particular).
But Trump has done a great deal through his executive authority to lower costs, open up new markets, and defang Obamacare’s worst features.
He has frequently called on Congress to pass legislation to lower drug prices. One of the costliest aspects of health care—for millions of Americans—is the crippling price of needed medications.
Trump has frequently lamented how affordable prescription drugs are overseas, simply because the governments allow it.
In American, drug prices are high for various reasons. A lack of competition and the availability of new medications give large drug companies a stranglehold on the market.
Through executive orders, the president can eliminate federal regulations and rules that further complicate the issue (and raise prices).
These three orders will significantly help senior citizens, who often struggle to pay for the medicine they need to survive. It will also take a huge burden off of families who have to work to afford medicine for their children and love ones.
This is especially welcomed after months of economic stagnation, brought on my state-mandated lockdowns.
- President Trump will sign three executive orders to lower prescription drug prices.
- The president has previously called on Congress to so, but it has refused.
