Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
We all watched the drama unfolding over the FAILED so-called Repeal of ObamaCare by the Republican Party majority in Congress. As our Donald pointed out to Republicans “You claimed for seven years to want to get rid of ObamaCare. When you got the chance to do it, you blew it…”
Of course, the fact that “399 of 435 US Representatives, and 97 of 100 US Senators WALLOW in 2016 election cycle Big Pharma cash” ABSOLUTELY had something to do with that LACK OF PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITY.
“As president Trump says of Big Pharma: “They contribute massive amounts of money to political people,” Trump said during an impromptu news conference, turning to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was standing to his side. “I don’t know, Mitch, maybe even to you.”
It is VERY clear to everyone in the United States that Big Pharma has to go in order to get a REAL health care system in the US.
So, what did Trump do?
He went to the States and got the individual State Attorney Generals to sue, and criminally prosecute, specific segments of Big Pharma (Opioid, and Generics) sending a STRONG message to Big Pharma. The message – there is a new Sheriff in town.
Did Big Pharma listen? Nope. They called their buddy Mitch McConnell and gave him his marching orders – telling him to frustrate Donald at every turn – to let Donald know “Who is really boss in Washington DC.”
So, now, it’s the “Showdown at the OK Corral.”
