Trump has shown once again that much of he said on the campaign trail were promises he never intended to keep. Evidence of this emerged on Friday, when a rule meant to curb prescription drug price gouging was halted.
While campaigning, Trump vowed to “bring down drug prices.” Instead he’s taking steps to do just the opposite.
The anti-price gouging rule would have gone into effect on Sunday. Now, it will be blocked until July, or perhaps longer.
That rule was created in 2010 under the Affordable Care Act to protect hospitals from being overcharged on prescription drugs that are supposed to be discounted under a program known as 340B. The program, which dates back to the early 1990s, is essentially an agreement between drug companies and the government to discount drugs to hospitals and health clinics that serve high numbers of low-income patients.
Trump’s broken campaign promise did not go unnoticed on Twitter.
After nearly eight months in office, Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that his actions rarely match his words.
