Big Pharma plans on fighting Trump's Buy American EO

NEW: I've obtained a draft letter from the Association for Accessible Medicines that shows a coalition of Big Pharma groups and right-leaning free market orgs are preparing to oppose Trump's proposed "Buy American" executive order:

Of course they are, and they have a right to do it. That doesn't mean it's ethical or benefits the public, but they have a service to provide that they make money on, so they're free to do whatever they deem to be in the best interest of their organization.

All we have to do is have Medicare and VA have a preference for USA made and a stricter cap on non-USA made. Also, simple enough to throw a little tax credit for the PBMs who prefer or buy American made pharmaceuticals.

That is simple enough - it won't be cheap, per se, but definitely better than fighting with those folks.

Obviously, Trump can go the tariff route on the other end.

I posted on her immediately after this "Decouple from China" movement was mentioned on this board: there will be vicious court fights and other resistance on every front to prevent de-coupling from China because there is WAY to many billions of dollars at stake for the Globalists to go down without a fight.

China has the USA by the balls and China's no Geisha - they won't let go gently.

Do you want your company nationalized, because this is how you get your company nationalized.

Medicare, Medicaid, VA, FHA, DOD, USDA, and every other alphabet agency should be MANDATED that they can only purchase made in the USA goods and services, end of story.

Private citizens can do WTF they wish.

Bully for them.

I hope they are prepared to take the PR hit, as well as some less than beneficial legislation.

It’s a national security concern. If all our eggs are in China’s basket because they are the cheapest then we deserve our fate when a global catastrophe occurs.


In a perfect world, perfect free trade is the best option. Unfortunately I would not call dealing with a communist government where you have to give up intellectual property rights “free trade.”

All that would have to be done as pointed out above is to issue an order stating that in 1 year all meds must be American made and sourced to be eligible for Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement and for future FDA product approvals it would be part of the process to establish and maintain US production.

Could be part of an act related to national defense and safety.

China threatened our supplies of antibiotics and other critical items, it would be completely justified.

No issues with free trade but FedGov should only purchase from those that pay US taxes and employ Americans.

Private citizens should be free to purchase what they wish from wherever they wish.

This is not a free trade issue.

They should just change the laws on how quickly medications can go generic. It usually takes 20 years for a drug to go generic after getting FDA approval. Change it so all of these things remove 5 years from that timeline:
• less than 50% of medication produced in USA
• 60%+ of final medication comes from a single source counrty
• 100% of final medication comes from a single source country

That would prioritize both made in USA and a diversified supply chain. If a country decides to have all finished pills come from China(or any other single country) then their patent is only guaranteed against competition from generics for 5 years.

That's a really bad idea. Even if they win they will lose because the next step is we will place massive tariffs on their products and force them to bring it back home.
