Expensive drugs are just plain un-American
Pfizer had a “talk” with Trump… although it may have been the US President’s Twitter complaint that caught the company’s attention. Pfizer claims that they had an extensive conversation with the President over their recent drug price hikes.
Trump got his way… no matter how it was accomplished, Pfizer is taking back their price hikes which were rolled out on July 1. The company “shares the President’s concern for patients and commitment to providing affordable access to the medicines they need.” Nothing can create a change of heart like bad publicity from the President.
Happy Trump, happy life… moreover, he praised the company for their decision to see things his way. However, Pfizer has only agreed to defer the price increases to give Trump more time to strengthen the healthcare system or until the end of the year, whichever comes first.
