Don’t let Big Pharma buy our health care system via secret payments to Trump | Social Security Works

Wonder why your drug prices are so high? Here’s your answer.

When Donald Trump was running for President, he proposed to let Medicare negotiate lower drug prices. He stated at the time that anyone who opposed that tactic was “in Big Pharma’s pocket.”

When Trump became President, the pharmaceutical corporation Novartis entered into a secret $1.2 million contract with Michael Cohen, Trump’s corrupt lawyer. Novartis has been involved in a global bribery scandal that ousted their previous CEO, in each country, working to prevent government-scale price negotiations.

Last week, Big Pharma got what they paid for: Donald Trump broke his promise on Medicare and drug prices, and sent Pharma stocks soaring. This is why drug prices are so high. Corrupt pharmaceutical corporations are spending their money protecting their profits.

This isn’t how our country should work. Drug prices are already too high. Medicare negotiation is one of the best tools we have to lower them.
