DRUGS/EXECUTIVE ORDERS/MEDICARE: “A lot of people would go up to Canada to buy their drugs because the prices were — for the exact same drug were much, much less, 50%, 60% much less and people would go there. Other countries have it even better than Canada, where they’re a fraction of the cost. So we were subsidizing socialist countries all over the world and funding research and development for the entire planet.
Now the global freeloading is over. My order, which I just signed, which nobody thought would be even possible to get signed, requires Medicare to purchase drugs at the exact same price as the lowest price that other countries have.”
