Trump Trying to Boost Flailing Campaign by Bribing Seniors with “Last Minute” Drug Coupons

By October 8, 2020No Comments

Washington, DC — Today, reports indicated that the Trump administration is “scrambling” to send seniors $200 drug coupons to help cover the cost of their prescription drugs after President Trump announced this blatant political ploy last month. In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement:

“Donald Trump is attempting to bribe American seniors with taxpayer dollars to boost his flailing campaign after doing nothing for the last four years to meaningfully lower the cost of prescription drugs. President Trump has refused to give Medicare the power to negotiate for lower prices — the single most effective way to make prescription drugs more affordable. Moreover, this hastily-conceived plan would raid the funding for Medicare, which was already at risk with his payroll tax cut plan. With 26 days to go until Election Day, these ‘drug coupons’ are nothing more than a blatant stunt from a president who threatens the lives of seniors every day by his disastrous mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and his reckless war on Medicare and the Affordable Care Act, which millions of seniors depend on every day.”
