As he states, “If you compare our drug prices to other countries in the world, in some cases it’s many times higher for the exact same pill or whatever it is, in the exact same package made in the exact same plant.”
He blames the lack of action to bring down the price of drugs on the powerful drug lobby that exists from pressures from Big Pharma. He has vowed previously to do something and there has been a long period of inaction, but he seems to have renewed vigor this time to get it down. Let’s hope this is the case, at least.
He makes a good point that drugs are the same regardless of the country that they are sold in, which is why personal prescription importation from Canada is an ideal solution for lowering the high price of drugs in the U.S.
