Today, President Trump is set to deliver a speech about prescription drug costs. After accusing the pharmaceutical industry of ‘getting away with murder’ and making multiple bold promises to lower drug prices ‘very substantially in the not-too-distant future,’ President Trump and his Administration have not taken any serious action on the issue. Even worse, the pharmaceutical industry has a firm grip on this Administration, wielding influence in top positions – including Alex Azar, Trump’s HHS Secretary and former top pharmaceutical executive.

Yesterday, President Trump stunned the international community when he announced the U.S. is pulling out of the successful Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This dangerous decision leaves America isolated instead of Iran, weakens our international credibility during a critical moment to advance a denuclearization agreement with North Korea and recklessly puts the catastrophic threat of a nuclear-armed Iran back on the table.

What was once just questions about millions of taxpayer dollars wasted on luxury trips, over-priced office furniture, and sound-proof phone booths – has now been revealed as something much more nefarious. Swampy, shady, scandalous doesn’t do these guys any justice. Examples of corruption, pay-to-play and an Administration that sells out the interest of the American people for profit, to line the pockets of their special interest lobbyist friends and corporate cronies, are piling up.

But instead of creating jobs and raising wages for American workers, the GOP tax scam instead delivers a massive windfall to Corporate America and the top one percent by mortgaging the future of America’s middle class families.

Looks like Tom Price – Trump’s former U.S. Health & Human Services Secretary and one of Republicans’ favorite voices on health care – is finally admitting the truth about the GOP tax scam’s repeal of the individual mandate: “There are many, and I’m one of them, who believes that that actually will harm the pool in the exchange market, because you’ll likely have individuals who are younger and healthier not participating in that market, and consequently, that drives up the cost for other folks within that market.”
