President Trump told Republican senators during a meeting on Tuesday that he still wants congressional action to lower drug prices, even though the coronavirus pandemic has sucked up oxygen, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).
Trump’s comments came during a closed-door lunch with GOP senators on Capitol Hill, where Grassley, a longtime proponent of lowering drug prices, asked Trump if the issue is still on the table.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I said the virus comes along and takes all your attention, so my question is do you still want us to put a bill on your desk to reduce drug prices?” Grassley recounted during an interview with Iowa radio station KSCJ on Wednesday.
Grassley said Trump “talked about it for a long period of time, as he takes a long time to answer questions, but he said yes, he expected us to put a bill on [his desk].”
Yesterday, @realDonaldTrump told Republican senators that he remains committed to lowering the cost of prescription drugs. @ChuckGrassley’s bill, the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act, is the bipartisan solution that we must get to his desk. pic.twitter.com/KFZ11I8ANa
