We can all breathe easy. According to the White House, there was no deal with big Pharmaceutical companies that would bar the government from negotiating on prices. However, given the constant stream of information and misinformation, it’s hard to tell what is really going on, and it wouldn’t be surprising if by tomorrow, we heard there was a deal.
Regardless, the hope of a strong public option still exists, and it’s down to progressives to keep pressure on the Obama Administration to ensure it isn’t negotiated away.
