In March, candidate Trump called for letting Americans import drugs to save money, and for changing the rules to let Medicare negotiate better deals. But the new transition website, www.greatagain.gov, features a page on healthcare reform that makes no mention of prescription drugs, even though polling consistently shows this is Americans’ top healthcare worry.This is what needs to be understood about Trump. He has no fear of big government--if he is running it. He is a mercantilist, a supply-sider, a Keynesian and an authoritarian, all mixed into one toxic brew.
It is impossible to know how the mix will come out until it is completed. But there is little, to nothing, positive in the ingredients.
