During last night’s State of the Union address, President Trump made health care “a consistent theme” in his speech. One area he stressed was drug prices and he vowed to take them on:
“It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place. This is wrong, this is unfair, and together we will stop it. We will stop it fast,” he said. “I am asking the Congress to pass legislation that finally takes on the problem of global freeloading and delivers fairness and price transparency for American patients.”
This may be one of the few areas where bipartisanship will prevail.
