Biden halts program that brings down cost of insulin, EpiPens

One focus during the Trump administration was lowering prescription drug costs, especially for low-income individuals. When he struck a deal with Big Pharma to lower the cost of insulin and epinephrine (EpiPens) for low-income patients, the White House rightly celebrated the accomplishment. Now the Biden administration has halted that initiative. Why does Joe Biden want to raise the price of such lifesaving drugs to those in greatest economic need?

    Why?
    Because he wants to promise them that, in return for a vote of course, he'll make it cheaper.
    Sadly, too many people will fall for this scam.

  4. As usual, it's a bribe. Trying to get to Joe Manchin. Joe Manchin's daughter is the CEO of the EpiPen company.

  5. Before Trump. I paid around $300 for the Epipen. During Trump, I paid $15.

    It seems lunch bucket Joe, who mever carried a lunch bucket in his life, is really working hatd to show what a dumb f#ck he really is.

    Do ya'll remember when the union worker in his hard hat asked Biden about taking our guns and Biden called the guy a liar to his face and said, "let's take it outside". I wish he would have knocked the crap outta Joe right then and there. The guy would be an American hero.

  7. The entire "Biden halts program" story is false, and Trump's lower prices had not even taken effect yet. Here's where the false claim came from: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/fact-check-is-biden-raising-prices-of-insulin-and-epi-pens-on-the-uninsured/ar-BB1dE0zz

    1. I am a type 1 diabetic and have been for 10+ years. Let me 'fact check' this for you, anonymous; using personal financial experience. During Obama, monthly insulin cost for me was just a bit over $400/month. Thankfully, only had to pay the copay-but I still saw the bill. During Trump, after the first 13 months, insulin cost was approximately what my copay was previously. So, you can put up links and what not, but you can also add in 'real world experience' to your list of info. But hey - at least we don't have to "endure" mean tweets anymore...

  9. Anon prices did go up, on a large majority of medications after the first of the year. It was not a program it was the reversal of Trumps action to reduce cost. I am sure the campaign contributions will go up commensurate with drug costs.

  10. That has to be a rhetorical question, right? Ohio Guy
