President Trump: We Will Ensure All Americans Have Access To Affordable Health Care

President Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar revealed their blueprint to lower the price of prescription drugs.
At a press conference in the Rose Garden Friday, the president said the drug lobby is making an “absolute fortune” at the expense of the American consumer and it must stop.
The president’s blueprint will reduce regulatory burdens, speed up the FDA’s approval of new drugs and eliminate the middle man.

Secretary Azar said to be a truly competitive market, drug companies will need to disclose their prices on their TV and print ads, adding, they are already discussing how to implement this plan with the FDA.
The White House doubled down on President Trump’s blueprint during Friday’s press briefing.
Secretary Azar outlined the plan and said the president could use executive action to get it done, but it may take months because of regulations..
He reiterated that the president wants to put money back in the pockets of consumers, citing the nearly nine billion dollars already saved because the FDA approved more generic drugs.
