Hey DNSubscriber -Re: " Associated Press . . . is notoriously
biased. (90% of all news coverage of Trump has been negative.)" Ha! That doesn't imply bias. The news is the news. The Associated Press
does its best to report the facts . . . The Truth . . . REALITY. 90%
of all news coverage about Trump has been negative because AT LEAST 90% of what
Trump says and does is negative.His actions are negative. He is
irresponsible, unintelligent, corrupt, treasonous, greedy, and pushy. He is
ignorant of the law. He is ignorant of how government works. His ignorance is
vast, AND he is Putin's puppet. THOSE are ALL negative qualities, AND those
are all facts.The legitimate news media reports the facts. So OF
COURSE 90% of all news coverage of Trump has been negative.Do you
see how that works now?Hey BYU Alum -Re: "President
Trump has already been more productive in 1 1/2 yr. than Obama in 8 yrs."No, Trump has been more DESTRUCTIVE in 1 1/2 yr. than Obama in 8 yrs.
Destruction is easy, and really nothing to brag about.Get your facts
How about requiring that all hospital bills and prescription receipts contain
listings of how much company CEOs are being paid?
Before the Trump haters get too spun up about "big pharma" and the Koch
brothers or whatever other bogeymen the Democrats are scaring them with, they
need to look at some facts.First, this explanation and criticism of
Trump's proposal is from Associated Press, which is notoriously biased.
(90% of all news coverage of Trump has been negative.) These are the same folks
who condemned the tax cuts as "breaks for the rich sticking it to the
workers." But, we now have a booming economy, record unemployment
(including among blacks and Hispanics) and increased wages and in today's
paper you can read about our electric bills coming down due to the Trump tax
cuts.I bet that drug prices will come down under Trump's plan,
despite the biassed claims in this article. However, they would probably come
down more if the government got out of the drug business entirely (except to
test for safety and effectiveness) and let the free market work.
To some, Our President will never do anything right, so forget Benghazi and the
other Hillary/Obama scandals. The best way to lower drug prices is not to use
them. Take care of your body. In most cases diabetes, heart and strokes can be
avoided by healthy lifestyles. Don’t be overweight and then complain about
My relative is on medicare part D. Each year she choses the prescription plan,
by the cost of her medication. This year the company she chose charged her three
times the price that the medicare site said (while under her deductable). The
company said they can charge anything they want when a person hasn't
covered their deductable. I find this highly dishonest. Why do
people waste their time chosing a plan when they can charge anything they want?
Trump's plan is pretty much what I expected; A placebo with extreme
hyperbole. Nothing more, nothing concrete, and nothing helpful. Bombast and
fanfare from the President and nothing changes. Sorry, but as usual, the
President has no clothes, no ideas and no plan.
The powerful corporate crowd controls the government so the best of luck to all
It's a nice start but definitely not going to be a solution by itself.
This is the president's plan? This is even a plan? This is a ridiculous
PR campaign to somehow "prove" that trump cares about the average
American struggling with drug prices and meets his campaign promises to
dramatically change same.The trump presidency is a sick joke on the
majority of Americans. And sadly so many of his sycophantic supporters
can't see this.
@byualum"President Trump has already been more productive in 1 1/2 yr.
than Obama in 8 yrs."Cite any source that supports your claim
with actual data.
President Trump has already been more productive in 1 1/2 yr. than Obama in 8
yrs. (and unemployment is at its lowest at 3.9% in decades.) I hope there are
lower prescription charges soon!No one in the press ever called BHO
out on anything, while we, the citizens, all suffered. President Trump just
keeps fulfilling more and more campaign promises even while the phony witch hunt
continues on and on while Democrats prosecutors at the FBI keep raking in big
salaries. Most people couldn't take that kind of pressure, but our great
POTUS does daily!God bless America, and God bless President Trump!
It's going to take a Herculean effort to get change here...control of drug
prices was one of the initial goals of the ACA, instead we ended up with another
The Donald delayed this to get a spin for giving in to big profits for big
companies. Bet they all play golf together at taxpayer expense this weekend.
What'll you bet Novartis drafted the proposal
The current WH re-Publican occupants plan...Extort as much as
possible from Big Pharma through Cohen related efforts...Come up
with a nonsense proposal...Laugh while Big pharma slinks away
realizing they have been had like millions of others who have chose to deal
with/align themselves with the current WH re-Publican occupant.Golf
Until we reverse Citizen's United and stop the massive flow of cash into
campaigns, this will never change. Until Citizen's United is
reversed through congress, our legislators work for their campaign donors, not
Gee. Funny how Trump's positions soften when thrown a few million dollars.
I hope Trump voters see how easily, and cheaply, he sells them out. I hope they
see it, but I doubt they will.
I hope Trump is successful. Don't mind if I am a bit skeptical. But hope
Big pharma is the proverbial goose that lays very large golden eggs, as is
evidenced by the recent revelation of Novartis and its' pay to play
payments to Cohen. There's no way trump could be expected to actually
do something real for the consumers of this nation as opposed to appeasing the
goose. His only option was to make unproductive noise about it, which he did.
A snake oil salesman peddling his cure all for drug prices. Coming from the
same man who's private attorney and close friend is selling Presidential
access to Novartis. Seriously?
