Tough Pill to Swallow

Health Care / Drug Prices: Democrats claim that the President has done nothing concerning healthcare. That is a lie. He signed an Executive Order allowing drug imports from Canada and other countries where the prices are lower so that prescription prices would go down; Trump signed an executive order this year that forces all healthcare providers to disclose the cost of their services facilitating comparison shopping and make clear the cost providers charge insurance companies so that no American would be blindsided by bills for medical services they never agreed to in advance and requiring hospitals to post their standard charges for services, which include the discounted price a hospital is willing to accept.* In the eight years prior to President Trump’s inauguration, prescription drug prices increased by an average of 3.6% per year. During the Trump Administration drug prices have seen year-over-year declines in nine (9) of the last ten (10) months, with a 1.1% drop as of the most recent month.
