Wyden Statement on Trump’s Taxpayer Funded Bribe

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued a statement today after the Trump administration announced it would send coupons to seniors instead of lowering their drug prices:

“Trump has surrendered to Big Pharma on prescription drug costs. It's clear this president only cares about drug costs during campaign season, and Big Pharma will continue to get away with murder as long as he’s in office. Trump is resorting to gimmicky coupons that hide the fact that he has totally failed to lower drug prices and that Big Pharma is thriving under his watch. Drug companies will be paying as much for this gimmick as Mexico is paying for The Wall."
