Dynamic Duo's Meeting with Trump Could Lead to Additional Relief Funds for Northwest Florida

Jordan Kirkland - May 7th, 2019

President Donald Trump met with a pair of Floridian allies on Monday to discuss a host of issues, including ways to expand choice and improve competition in Florida's health care market.

Floridians spent a lot on prescription drugs last year, with the total reaching $30 billion, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Earlier this year, Florida's governor pushed for importing drugs from Canada as a way to cut rising health care costs in the state. The program would allow Canada to send FDA-approved drugs to the Sunshine State, thus lowering prescription drugs costs that are crippling the state.

The meeting which included Gov. Ron DeSantis and U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz, took place at the White House yesterday, with it being called a productive meeting by Gaetz on Twitter.
