President Addresses High Cost of Prescription Drugs

February 5, 2020

President Trump addressed the high costs of prescription drugs on Tuesday night during the annual State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. The President shared:

"And working together, the Congress can reduce drug prices substantially from current levels. I have been speaking to Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa and others in the Congress in order to get something on drug pricing done, and done quickly and properly. I am calling for bipartisan legislation that achieves the goal of dramatically lowering prescription drug prices. Get a bill to my desk, and I will sign it into law immediately."
