Trump takes credit for insulin price: Biden 'had nothing to do with it'

Former President Trump took credit for the insulin award in a post on Truth Social Saturday.

“Low INSULIN PRICES for millions of Americans were obtained by me and the Trump administration, not Crooked [President Biden,]Trump said in the Truth Social post. “He had NOTHING to do with it. It had all happened long before his sad rise to power. All he does is try to take credit for things done by others, in this case by me!”

President Biden has hailed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the law that sets a $35 limit on insulin for people with Medicare, as a major achievement.

“Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, instead of paying $400 a month for insulin, seniors on Medicare will pay just $35 a month,” he said. said in a post on the social platform X late last year.

Biden's campaign has credited some of his achievements with lowering drug prices and lowering healthcare costs, such as capping insulin costs, while creating a contrast with Trump.

“Donald Trump was too weak as president to take on Big Pharma and lower prescription drug prices for seniors – but Joe Biden made it happen. As a result, millions of people are seeing lower prices for the lifesaving medicines they depend on,” Biden campaign spokesperson Seth Schuster said in a statement to The Hill.

Schuster also said that if the former president returns to the White House for a second term, “prices will skyrocket and Americans currently benefiting from $35 insulin may have to choose between paying rent and paying for their essential medications.” .”

The Hill has reached out to the Biden campaign.
