Brandon is very angry that someone made insulin prices so high:
Unfortunately, that someone is him. In fact, it was one of the first things he did upon taking office. CNN even admitted it:
A freeze by the new Biden administration on Trump-era regulations will hit at least two rules aimed at lowering drug prices, including one dealing with insulin and EpiPens for under-served patients.
The agency is also freezing a Trump rule requiring Federally Qualified Health Centers, which provide primary care services to underserved communities, to pass along discounts they receive on insulin and EpiPens to their patients.
The rule only affects medications these centers purchased through the 340B drug discount program, not the prices of these drugs for the general public.
Trump officials said the rule would increase access to these medications among the 28 million people who visit the centers annually, over 6 million of whom are uninsured.
The rule was to have taken effect on January 22 but was delayed to March 22 to give Biden’s health officials time to review it and consider new regulations.
And they never did implement the Trump rule after “reviewing and considering it,” at least as far as I can tell.
In Brandon’s defense, he doesn’t read any of the Executive Orders he signs. Ron Klain just hands them to him, and he signs them.
Brandon probably doesn’t even remember signing this one, honestly.
At least he doesn’t tweet!
