Trump Win Doesn't Get Pharma Off the Hook on High Drug Prices


Even with a presumably business-friendly president-elect in Donald Trump, drugmakers that have been battered by criticism over high prices in the past year are bracing for Republican and Democratic lawmakers to take aim at the industry. Although Trump's brief health plan released last week on his transition's website doesn't mention drug prices, he has previously voiced support for having the government negotiate prices in Medicare, and allowing the re-importation of cheaper treatments from other countries -- two proposals the pharmaceutical industry has long opposed.
