President Trump Blames High Drug Prices on “Campaign Contributions”

From today’s rally in Kentucky:

“I happen to like a lot Sen. Rand Paul. I like him. He’s a good guy. I look forward to working with him so we can get his bill passed in some form so we can pass massive tax reform, which we can’t do until this happens. We got to get it done, for a lot of reasons, but that’s one of them. It’s important to realize how we got to Obamacare in the first place. Thursday is our chance to end the Obamacare disaster. Then we get to tax cuts. Remember, we are going to negotiate and it’s going to go to the Senate, and back and forth. The end result is going to be wonderful. Once this is done, we are going to work on bringing down the cost of medicine by having a fair and competitive bidding process. The cost of medicine in this country is outrageous. Why? Same pill. Same manufacturer. You know why? Campaign contributions, who knows, but somebody is getting very rich.”
