Drug prices are SKYROCKETING, and leftist judges won’t let Trump fix it because orange man bad
07/20/2019 // Ethan Huff // Views

Long before Donald Trump was ever even a presidential prospect, it was leftist Democrats that claimed they would be the ones to reign in out-of-control drug prices. Well, that never happened, and now that President Trump is actually trying to get the job done, many of these same liberals are spitefully scheming to stop him because of their relentless hatred towards all things Trump.

Rather than simply accept the fact that Hillary Clinton was and is a failure and move on, the deranged left continues to angrily work against all aspects of the Trump administration's agenda, including its bipartisan efforts to hold Big Pharma accountable for price-gouging consumers.

As a result of the left's uncooperative resistance, the prices on some 3,400 drugs have risen substantially thus far in 2019. This is in addition to a similar price spike that occurred in 2018 on about 2,900 drugs – a dangerous trend that will only continue as long as Democrats dig their heels in and refuse to work alongside Republicans to do what's best for the American people.

According to the latest data, the average price hike for drugs in 2019 is 10.5 percent, which is about five times the normal rate of inflation. Meanwhile, the prices on 41 different drugs have more than doubled this year, with one of the worst being the antidepressant Prozac, which jumped in price by an astounding 879 percent compared to last year.

Four out of five Americans from both sides of the political aisle agree that drug prices are completely unreasonable at this point, while about one-third of patients say they're now having to skip taking their medications because they just can't afford them. But do the Democrats care? Of course not – because if they did, then it would make Trump look good, and they can't have that!

Democrats don't care if they kill patients, as long as they can stop Trump

The president has indicated that, in lieu of bipartisan congressional support, he plans to sign an executive order that would force the drug industry to price its medications the same here in the United States as they are in the poorest third-world countries.

But even this is being challenged by leftist judges who, were Barack Obama still in office, wouldn't be saying a word. But since Trump is the one trying to do good by the American people, these enemies of justice are fighting tooth and nail to create a legislative and executive stalemate whereby the president is unable to accomplish his goals and fulfill his promises.

This petty assault by leftists against our president is having real-life consequences, as diabetics, for instance, are having an increasingly difficult time paying for the insulin they need in order to live – insulin that, even though it's been around forever, has more than doubled in price over the past five years.

But Democrats couldn't care less, because keeping drug prices high in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election will make Trump look bad, which is exactly what they want in the hopes that one of their clowns will take his place.

"We don't have an open and efficient market," says Jim Chanos, a hedge fund manager and short seller, about the current health care paradigm and Big Pharma's role in it. "Those things lead to this environment and to higher prices," he adds, noting that these constantly rising prices are "not a good look" as we approach 2020.
