Governor Ron DeSantis, the greatest governor in American history, has planned to import medications from Canada, which are cheaper there than in America. It’s a great idea which could help millions of Floridians, but F. Joe Biden is blocking the plan out of spite.
The governor’s office said it has been waiting 630 days for approval from the Food and Drug Administration for its proposal to import cheap, safe medications from Canada.
You do realize this is being held back because DeSantis is a conservative, right?
“Florida has been ready to deliver cheaper prescription drugs to those that need them for nearly two years,” the Republican said. “The lack of transparency by the Biden administration during the approval process, and failure to provide records on the importation proposal, is costing Floridians who are facing rising prices across the board due to inflation.”
Florida is now suing the Biden administration over its delays and failure to respond to information requests about the status of the program. I’ll leave it to the lawyers to hash out the merits of the lawsuit, but on its face, this situation reveals either incompetence or cynical partisanship from the Biden administration.
It’s likely incompetence and partisanship. From his first day in office, F. Joe Biden has done all he can to hinder conservatives, especially Governor DeSantis.
Importing prescription drugs from Canada, where they are generally cheaper, is a great, pro-market way to make healthcare more affordable. Only Big Pharma and its lackeys really oppose this because it undercuts their bottom line by increasing competition. They say it’s “unsafe,” but come on — we’re talking about Canada, not Somalia. Aside from those with crony interests at play, most can see why this is a commonsense move.
Even Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), of all people, has praised DeSantis’s effort, calling it “great.”
Bernie Freakin’ Sanders said this was a great idea, and yet, it will go nowhere because this piece of garbage will not allow Americans to get cheaper medications.
