President Trump’s proposal to import cheaper drugs from Canada made a lot of Canadians angry.
Canadians are hopping mad about Trump’s drug importation plan. Some of them are trying to stop it. (STAT News, August 12, 2019)
From the article:
“You are coming as Americans to poach our drug supply, and I don’t have any polite words for that,” said Amir Attaran, a professor at the University of Ottawa, who calls the plan “deplorable” and “atrociously unethical.” “Our drugs are not for you, period.”
The Canadian healthcare system negotiates the price of drugs, which is why their drugs are cheaper. Why can’t the US government do the same?
