In the News (Bloomberg News): “President-elect Donald Trump’s fiery stance on drug prices is putting pressure on pharmaceutical companies that may be designed to bring their support for his planned overhaul of the nation’s health-care system.
“Hours after Trump upended pharmaceutical stocks Wednesday with a pledge to force drugmakers to bid for government business, the U.S. Senate narrowly rejected a proposal to allow importation of cheaper prescription drugs from Canada. …
“Trump’s remarks may have had the effect of bringing pharma companies to the table in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, which the president-elect has made a priority.”
My Comment: We cannot even imagine the meaning of such an announcement because the budget for health care and the amount of money spent on medication for the population equals the defense budget.
Pharmaceuticals are a very profitable business; a lot of money is spent and a lot is burned. A medicine that costs ten cents, for example, is sold for a thousand dollars. If Trump lowers the price of these medicines, which means that the pharmaceutical manufacturers will receive only what they deserve, not 500 or 5,000 times more than the cost of to produce it.
Trump is a bold man. He has undoubtedly been given a very important role. He is the embodiment of humanity’s shift to a new road, to a new goal, to a new path of development, and at least through him the upper force will be heard.
I don’t want to praise him to such a level, since he is merely a puppet on a string, but a chosen puppet. Compared to the one who was elected before him, he embodies a totally different representation of the Creator. Let’s hope he will succeed.
