With Trump promising to repeal and replace Obamacare, Democrats are in a panic. They are trying to find ways to bring down prescription drug prices, which seems to mean importing them from Mexico.
This is not a joke.
From Western Journalism:
With Republican dreams of repealing and replacing Obamacare failing, Senate Democrats have sensed an opportunity and introduced a bill to literally bring drugs across the Mexican border — all in the name of bringing down prescription drug prices, of course.
You can’t make this stuff up. This drug deal is the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Al Franken, D-Minn. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., everybody’s favorite socialist, had a hand in it as well.
They’re calling it a “landmark proposal” and a “milestone effort” to bring down the cost of prescription drugs. That claim should be your first red flag. When has the all-star cast of Warren, Franken, and Sanders brought down the price of anything? Never.
The real name of this monstrosity is the Improving Access to Affordable Prescription Drugs Act. It is difficult to adequately name a drug-running scheme. At least, the gun-running scheme, Fast and Furious sounded rather cutting edge or ominous.
This group of drug-loving Democrats should have kept it simple. Something like, the Fauxcahontas Cartel, to honor the leader of the movement, Warren, a fake Native American.
This sounds like a disaster. How can we possibly determine if these drugs are up to American standards when they come from across the border? The FDA will have to examine them and you can only imagine how much that will cost. I doubt it will be affordable after that.
