(Natural News) President Trump took aim at Big Pharma’s price monopolies in tonight’s State of the Union speech, promising — perhaps even threatening — to “dramatically” lower prescription drug prices in the near future. “One of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of prescription drugs,” the President said to wide applause. “In many other countries, these drugs cost far less than what we pay in the United States. That is why I have directed my Administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities. Prices will come down.”
As expected, Democrats were quick to attack the President over his comments, citing a “lack of specifics” on how, exactly, he plans to bring down prescription drug prices. Such comments, of course, ignore the fact that the State of the Union address is an overview of the nation’s status and future direction, not a detailed policy debate for number crunchers.
It’s also worth mentioning that Democrats usually have no idea how things actually get accomplished through innovation rather than government control. Note that former President Obama once expressed extreme skepticism that Trump could help bring jobs back to America, mocking Trump with the question of whether he had a “magic wand” that could bring those jobs back. A year later, Trump responded by signing the GOP tax reform bill into law, which has already resulted in a windfall of repatriated money, jobs and opportunities rushing back to America. (The Democrats are still confused how this happened. The idea of smaller government makes no sense to them, because Democrats have no faith in the People achieving great things on their own, without the intervention of Big Government…)
