Bernie Sanders: Senate Republicans block Trump proposal to lower prescription drug prices

first_imgVermont Business Magazine Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) proposed an amendment Tuesday to lower the cost of prescription drugs by letting Medicare negotiate drug prices and allowing for the importation from other countries of low-cost prescription drugs – both proposals advocated by President-elect Donald Trump. Republicans blocked the Sanders amendment.During his run for the White House, Trump called for requiring Medicare to negotiate with drug companies to lower prices. In a speech in New Hampshire last Feb. 7, Trump criticized current U.S. law that forbids Medicare from negotiating prices with pharmaceutical companies. Trump said: “We are not allowed to negotiate drug prices. Can you believe it? We pay about $300 billion more than we are supposed to, than if we negotiated the price. So there’s $300 billion on day one we solve.”Trump’s campaign platform also advocated making it legal to reimport cheaper drugs from other countries. Sanders offered an amendment to implement Trump’s campaign promises. “I am sure that all of my Republican colleagues will support an amendment in my hands that will do exactly what Mr. Trump said he would accomplish as president,” Sanders told Senate colleagues. But Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) objected to holding a vote on the amendment.Without those changes in a bill now before Congress, Sanders said he could not support the overall legislation because it caves to the demands of the pharmaceutical industry and cuts Medicare and Medicaid by $1 billion. “It is incomprehensible to me that we have a major bill dealing with prescription drugs and yet we are running from the most important issue and that is the greed of the pharmaceutical industry,” Sanders said.  “The prescription drug industry, along with Wall Street, is the most powerful political force in America. I have been fighting the greed of the prescription drug industry for decades. And, as far as I can tell, the prescription drug industry always wins, but the American people lose.”To see the amendment, click here(link is external). Source: WASHINGTON, Dec. 6, 2016 – Senator Bernie Sanderslast_img read more

Sabonim’s season could be over, “Clippers” important William will leave the…

first_imgSabonis, 24, tried to play despite the injury, but now decided to get medical help that could not be given in a “bubble”, so he had to leave. Although Sabonis and the team have expressed hope and the return of the Lithuanian later this season, it is not excluded that the treatment of the injury will take longer, and Sabonis may not play anymore.“Pacers” still hope that another team star Viktor Oladipo will take part in the rest of the season. The defender is with the team and participates in training in preparation for the resumption of the season, but has not hidden the idea of ​​participation. Namely, given Oladipo’s injury history and the fact that the next is the last year of the current contract, it is not worth risking to play if the NBA rules do not allow it to do so, losing only a relatively small portion of income (for unplayed games) and without additional sanctions.Sabonis has helped the Pacers this season with an average of 18.5 points per game, 12.4 rebounds and five assists. In February, Sabonis was included in the All-Star Game for the first time in his career.Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers, one of the league’s favorites, have quickly lost their third most important player – defender Lou Williams has left Orlando. There is a good reason for Williams to leave, but more specific details are not provided. Previously, the team was also left in Florida by the head of the main match, Parik Beverley, and the reserve center Montrezl Herels.Williams and Herel are the most outstanding reserve duo in the league, both of whom are the main candidates for this season’s best reserve award. The departure of Beverley and Herel was based on family matters – a more and more frequent excuse recently, commenting on the players’ departure from Orlando. Clippers coach Dock Rivers has found that it’s usually not uncommon during the season for players to miss a workout for just such a reason – to solve a family problem.“I think everyone understands – we can start the season. The question is, will we be able to finish it? The league now knows what the teams knew a long time ago – it’s more than basketball. The boys have their own lives. problem with the child, problem with the wife or anything else – such things exist in the lives of these guys [parasti sezonas laikā] “We constantly give guys a vacation for these reasons, but no one specifically records it,” said Rivers. “When you’re in a” bubble, “it is not missed. The good news is that the public now sees NBA players as real people who also have normal life problems. ”The Clippers went to Orlando without two basic top five players – center Ivica Zubaca and defender Lendry Shemeta. Due to family problems, the team was later joined by experienced striker Marcus Morris. In addition, it is already known that Morris will leave the “bubble” again in September, when his child will be born. “Some things are more important than basketball. Some guys will come back. We ask about these guys. We don’t worry about the depth of the lineup in these training games. We know who will return and what team we are on,” Morris commented.Resources used:ESPNlast_img read more
