Drug prices going up despite Trump promise

President Trump made reducing drug prices a key promise during his election campaign, repeatedly accusing drugmakers of “getting away with murder.” At the end of May, he promised that drug companies would be announcing “massive” voluntary drug price cuts within two weeks.
An Associated Press analysis of brand-name prescription drug prices shows it’s mostly been business as usual for drugmakers. In the two months after Trump’s announcement, there were more than 16 price hikes for every decrease, the AP found. Over the first seven months of the year, there were 96 price increases for every cut.
