Trump issued three Executive Orders & threatened a fourth if Big Pharma doesn't produce a plan to reduce RX drug prices. It's been interesting watching Big Pharma recoil & react. Predictably they're running ads aimed at getting corporate Reps & Dems to oppose Trump's EO's.

1. Directs HHS to complete the rule making for the mass importation of certain drugs from Canada as a cost saving measure. It also offers a waiver on the importation of prescription drugs for the personal use by individuals. Authorizes HHS to import insulin under FDC Act Section 801(d) under the guise of it being necessary for "emergency medical care".

2. "On February 6, 2019, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of HHS published a proposed rule designed to eliminate the current antikickback law safe harbor protection for rebates paid by drug manufacturers to pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and replace it with a new safe harbor protecting manufacturer discounts provided to federal program beneficiaries at the point of sale."

"This Executive Order directs HHS to revive and complete the rulemaking process, but only after confirming “that the action is not projected to increase Federal spending, Medicare beneficiary premiums, or patients’ total out-of-pocket costs.”


3. Federally funded health care centers/clinics must pass along discounted savings on insulin to low income patients.

Proposed Executive order:

4. "The fourth Executive Order will peg drug payment by Medicare (and perhaps other payors) to prices in foreign countries." "The 2018 ANPRM would provide for drug payment rates under Medicare Part B to be based on an international pricing index derived from prices in 14 foreign countries."

CRG is spamming posts today. He recevied orders to try to prop up Trump because it's looking very dire for the president's reelection chances.

CRG is scared sh!tless.

Craig is fired up today. I wonder if he is importing his own drugs.

It ain't Trump that's trying to change the way we vote 60 days before the election. The Dems have long known they couldn't win fair & square. Cheating is their only chance.

Go figure. A president doing what a president is supposed to do; help make things better for the people. Another step that will barely get a mention...

Letting people buy their personal meds legally from Canada is a big deal, as is making federally funded clinics/hospitals pass along savings to low income insulin users. It's notable that no one here is criticizing Trump for this.

Trump is also actively negotiating with Big Pharma to peg Medicare drug costs to foreign markets. I don't envision that actually happening, I think Big Pharma will eventually bring a plan that;s acceptable as a compromise & Trump will agree.

Pharmaceuticals are not sold in a free and fair market worldwide. If it’s not going to be free market way anywhere else, it would be fantasy to think it’s anything but the US subsidizing the rest of the world.

Excuses are for Losers - Change your best, accept the results for what they are and quit whining like teenager you are in real life .

The mail in ballots were decided long before now and Republicans who know a hell of a lot more about it then you, I or anyone else on this half-baked intellect board do, such as the LAWYER who represented Bush before the Supreme Court has called it bull feathers (I posted a thread on here - read the black only part and you might be a learnin sumthang tonight).

They are true patriots as they put country before party!!

Your shine box is calling you kiddo -

Right, like when Trump tried to delay the election.

Man, you are really desperate. You're still posting 2 months before an election. You haven't done that in a long time. You really are scared.

It'll be ok CRG. Trump can run again in 2024. We'll all relish in Biden for 4 years, with Trump trying again.

"Don't let Trump 'sneak or steal' a win"

- Hillary Clinton
Same as before...LMAO

And trying to discourage mail-in balloting & questioning it, even though you/your family members do it, as well as numerous members of your administration, is the height of hypocrisy. An argument can also be made using his office to do so, is voter suppression, as it is meant to discourage voting.

Let alone the nonsense that his buddy DeJoy is pulled with the USPS - can't wait to see him indicted for the illegal contributions scam he was running at his company.

Will be interesting to see how many election laws the purported 40K poll watchers that the RNC has recruited, break. Will it include such winners as the Pride & Bunghole Boyz? Will the WhackoAnon members also be out in full force? So at what polling location in MN will you be harassing citizens from exercising their Constitutional Right to Vote?? Just remember Voter Intimidation is a Felony and Dumbo Donald ain't covering your legal fees.

Sure, but how come it took him until about 50 days before the election to do this? The price of prescription drugs has been a big issue for a long time.

Probably a good question. About as valid a question as to why the last guy, who had 8 years, didn't do a single thing in regards to race relations, other than fanning the flames when given the chance. 8 years. Nothing of note. And if I'm not mistaken he was an African American as well. Doesn't make sense
