Xtalks Announces a New Blog Article -- Trump, Sanders and Clinton: Pharmaceutical Industry's Friends Or Foe?

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - Xtalks has announced a new Life Science blog:

Pharmaceutical industry issues surrounding drug pricing, patient access and affordable healthcare, have all become important points of debate in the 2016 US general election. In light of recent events involving drug pricing scandals, each of the presidential nominees has made a point of addressing their plans for the pharmaceutical industry, if they are elected to office.

While each of their platforms varies when it comes to dealing with drugmakers, all three of the top candidates -- Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump -- are siding with public opinion. All three candidates are advocating for increased transparency in the drug pricing process.

What makes each candidate interesting is how their opinions differ on this issue, and what changes they plan to implement to fix problems with the current system. Considering that each of these presidential hopefuls has accepted donations from the industry, it's perhaps even more interesting to see how their ideals align with that of their pharmaceutical industry financial supporters.
