Americans for Limited Government announces ad campaign opposing President Trump’s proposed drug pricing Executive Order

Aug. 5, Fairfax,Va.—Americans for Limited Government will be taking to the airwaves opposing President Trump’s proposed Executive Order tying U.S. drug prices to those dictated by foreign socialist governments.

The $2.2 million dollar first phase cable TV ad buy starts on August 6th focusing upon Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement regarding the TV ad buy:

“No one has been a bigger fan of President Donald Trump than I have been.  I have repeatedly defended him against repeated attacks from never Trump ne’er-do-wells, and will continue to do so.  But the issue of socialized medicine and the ramifications of the President’s proposed Executive Order are too serious to ignore.

“It is my firm hope that the President will reconsider this draconian step. Drug prices are a symptom of a deeper problem related to the high cost of bringing medicines to market ($2.6 billion according to the latest Tufts University study) and the length of time it takes to bring those treatments to market.

“The ad is respectful but extremely firm in making people aware of the danger of presidentially mandated prices based upon the whims of foreign governments.

“President Trump gets so much right, Americans for Limited Government implores him to reconsider this mistake.”
