As big pharmaceutical company stocks spiked following President Trump’s short and substance-free ‘major drug pricing reform address,’ Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement:

“When big pharmaceutical companies’ stocks spike during your big reveal on lowering prices, you’re doing something wrong. Don’t be fooled: President Trump and his Administration are bought and paid for by Big Pharma. They refuse to take meaningful action on skyrocketing drug prices, broke their promise to allow Medicare to negotiate lower drug costs, and all while showering drug companies with record tax breaks. Sadly, it’s ordinary Americans who will continue to pay the price for Trump’s broken promise.”
