Is it a bribe for their votes?
Trump has signed a Executive Order….it is easier than going through Congress…..to help seniors with their ever expanding drug prices……but will it truly help or just a blatant attempt to bribe the seniors for their vote?
Consumer advocacy group Public Citizen on Thursday accused President Donald Trump of a “transparent and pathetic attempt to bribe” seniors for their votes after Trump vowed to send $200 prescription drug discount cards to more than 30 million Medicare recipients just weeks ahead of the November election.
Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, called Trump’s highly dubious promise “bizarre” and said that “seniors and all Americans don’t need Trump cards, they need real solutions to rip-off drug prices,” which have continued to soar during Trump’s presidency despite his repeated vows to lower them.
“The solution to outlandishly high pharmaceutical prices is not to give people money to offset extortionate drug prices; the solution is to end price gouging altogether,” Weissman said in a statement.
“Seniors and all Americans don’t need Trump cards, they need real solutions to rip-off drug prices.”
