Trump did NOT make the regulations re negotiation with the health care suppliers...
This Is Why Your Drug Prescriptions Cost So Damn Much
The federal government was barred from negotiating cheaper prices for those medicines. Instead, the job of holding down costs was outsourced to the insurance companies delivering the subsidized new coverage, known as Medicare Part D.
The ban on government price bargaining, justified by supporters on free-market grounds, has been derided by critics as a giant gift to the drug industry. Democratic lawmakers began introducing bills to free the government to use its vast purchasing power to negotiate better deals even before former President George W. Bush signed the Part D law, known as the Medicare Modernization Act.
All those measures over the last 13 years have failed, almost always without ever even getting a hearing, much less being brought up for a vote.
(Oooops gee, we too dumb, to get nothin' done!!!!)
Maybe you should look 'em up so can see hoe dumb that statement really was. Current trumhaters deserve your gratitude for their past american people hate.
