Trump Calls For Action on Drug Prices

Trump Calls For Action on Drug Prices

(ReliableNews.org) – Over the last several weeks, the government has been on hold as President Donald Trump and other leaders fight the COVID-19 pandemic. However, now that the country is opening up, their attention is turning elsewhere. Recently, a Republican lawmaker revealed the president wants Congress to turn its attention to a critical issue: prescription drug prices.

Earlier this week, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said the president told Republicans during a closed-door lunch, he’ll sign a bill to lower prices for drugs.

If this happens, it’ll be a much-needed change for millions of seniors. The rising cost of prescription drugs in the US has left Americans unable to buy life-saving medication. Some people have even died because they couldn’t afford them, and it’s not a small problem. According to a 2019 Gallup poll, roughly 7.5 million seniors can’t afford to pay for their medication. Hopefully, the president will be able to change that.
