The White House indicated Tuesday that US President Donald Trump is rejecting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's proposed legislation allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices, as reported in U.S. News & World Report.
A senior White House official disclosed that the administration has concluded Pelosi's plan is "unworkable" and Trump will instead support bipartisan legislation pending in the Senate.
According to the official, while Trump is not ideologically opposed to Medicare negotiating prices for medicines, Pelosi's approach cannot be quickly retooled.
Meanwhile, Pelosi spokesman Henry Connelly commented that "working people won't like it if [Trump] sells them out on one of the most important kitchen table issues in America right now."
