    In Trump's 1st press conference since the election, after a few statements geared to mend the relationship with media and pumping up Fiat and Ford, Trump made a clear and direct plan to take down the Pharma industry stating they have been "getting away with murder." Stating there aren't any bid processes in pharma destroying the integrity of the price and will be going after many other industries that have the same circumstances.

    I am triggerdly excited to see this shit.

    Trump may be a piece of shit, he may have done some awful shit to women but one thing for sure is he knows how to get shit done as a business man and he may have the biggest ego on the planet. While there are some negative qualities to a huge ego I know one great quality is the tenacious effort to do an outstanding job and look good.

    He called out Pharma's lobbyists directly in his very first press conference so it's easy to have some faith he will do something to better that part of the country. Sorry for having hope and being positive? :noidea:

    If he follows through with this, it will have a serious impact on what I think of Trump. Pharma companies are the worst. When the gov regulates one highly addictive and dangerous opioid they pedal, they make a minor change in the opioids chemistry, call it a different name, and pedal it as a pain medicine when it's just as addictive and dangerous. I seriously hope he follows through on this.

    No one but Trump could move those conversations from outside politics to inside politics. You guys that don't like him have no clue about his particular skill set and how it will help us.

    If he does this, I will give him huge props.

    He has a hard road to walk though, as he'll be going against his own party who gave Pharma the no compete price protections.

    He can count on the Democrats to vote with him on it. Doesn't need to win the Republicans, just a plurality, and get the leadership to clear the road for votes.

    Then there should be a finite number agreed upon if that is the case. They can't come to the table as is and say "it's priceless, fuck you, pay me."

    If anymof you have ever been outside the US, you can find prescription type drugs on the shelves in other countries and at a minor fraction of the price. A friend of mine reveled at the fact he could buy Viagra off the shelf in Mexico and less than 5 bucks a pill. he said he pays over $40 per pill with his insurances pricss right now. thats alot of money to get a boner. Glad mine still works as it always has.

    If Trump can take on Big pharma and win, then medical insurancd will drop as well.

    Nah, its just shows that "Libtards" don't care what party accomplishes something positive, as long as it gets done...

    Again, let's see how far this gets and if it dies, who ultimately ends up killing it. Should be quite revealing.

    I do truly hope Trump succeeds on this.

    They charge what Medicare will pay...that is the only criterion when their biggest customer is gov't. It's easy to fix when the one is charge isn't in the lobbyists pocket.
