WASHINGTON — After months of pledging he would get pharmaceutical companies to lower their prices, President Trump can now say that he pressed the CEO of a major drug maker, Pfizer, to back down on a series of price hikes.
Pfizer, in turn, has earned glowing praise from Trump and his administration and will likely not suffer much, if at all, financially.
As for consumers: None of it might make any difference in the amount they pay for their prescription drugs, analysts say. Pfizer’s prices will likely go right back up at the end of the year.
I guess in his world, and mind, a delayed increase in prices amounts to a huge drop in the cost of drugs. So, promise kept!
There is also a chance he is a HUGE fan of the godfather and goodfellas movies, so he made them an offer they couldn’t refuse and it would be a shame something would happen to Pfizer CEO’s family. Capisc?
It looks like people are accustomed to the Alternative Facts. This will be spun by the media to make it appear he cured cancer.
