TRUMP ISSUES EXECUTIVE ORDERS ON DRUGS PRICES: Pres. Trump is expected to sign three executive orders targeting big pharma and drug prices. The orders include speeding up the timeline for states and pharmacies to import some drugs from Canada, lowering the price of some drugs through Medicare to tie them to what is paid in other countries, and requiring a provision for insulin prices to be significantly lowered to thousands of hospitals and community health centers. Trump has frequently cited lowering drug prices as a pillar of his platform and many see this action as addressing his vulnerability in health care leading up to the November election. This comes as the administration continues it’s suit to overturn Obamacare, which would strip 20 million Americans of health coverage and end protections for preexisting conditions.
