“Rising prescription drug prices is one of the most pressing issues facing Americans today. We are encouraged to see the president-elect is ready to take action. We look forward to working with the new Administration and the new Congress to find solutions to fix the broken prescription drug market, and to help make life-saving medications more affordable for the patients who need them.”
Trump told Time, “I’m going to bring down drug prices. “I don’t like what has happened with drug prices.”
