Why President Trump Wins in 2020

Posted June 27, 2019, 1:50 am

trump1President Trump will be re-elected in 2020.  Here’s why.

America is great because President Trump has been doing what he promised to do during the 2016 campaign.  It is great because President Trump has captured the attention and enthusiasm of a large and diverse base.  The constant obstruction he has faced only energizes his base more.  A lot of Americans again care about America.

On Tuesday, June 18, President Trump formally confirmed what we all knew: he is running for re-election as president of the United States.

He made his re-election announcement in front of 20,000 exuberant supporters in a packed Orlando, Florida arena.  There were that many or more supporters outside as well, and 120,000 people had requested tickets for the event.  In addition to the energy of the crowd, observers reported that it contained more women and Hispanics than previous crowds.  That’s an ominous sign for the Democrats.

The president’s campaign theme this year is “Keep America Great.”  The president’s policies are working.  Lower taxes have a positive effect on the economy.  When the economy grows, jobs are created, unemployment falls, and people live better.  Reason tells us that creating a positive environment for business will result in thriving business.  This means minimal government regulation.  For business to grow does not require intervention from the government; it does not require huge market-distorting subsidies; it is not helped by the government forcing social policy on business.  It does not require that the government tell people how to spend or invest their money.  It simply requires the government to stay out of the way.  The free market works.

Do you need proof house socialists are crazy?

Posted December 31, 2018, 9:46 am

67564One of the great resources of the United States is the ability of Drug Manufacturers to research, develop and bring to market miraculous lifesaving drugs.  This is a long and tremendously expensive process, made longer and more expensive by voluminous federal regulation.

When a company spends hundreds of millions of dollars developing a drug, they deserve to be compensated for that effort by not only recouping development costs but also making a profit.

In America this right is protected to some degree by the grant of a patent which gives the company the exclusive right to market that product for some period of time before copycat generics may be marketed in competition.  Currently, this period is 20 years from the time of invention.  It can take eight or more years to go through all the testing and validation protocols so a company may only have 10 or so years to recoup hundreds of millions of dollars of development cost plus make a profit.  The market may be very focused and small.  Consequently, many highly effective miracle drugs are very expensive.

The Democrats see this as a horrible inequity that must be “corrected”.  Their solution, as always, is a socialist response.  House Bill  H.R. 6505 titled Medicare Negotiation and Competitive Licensing Act of 2018 introduced by Rep. Lloyd Doggett D-TX seeks to give another unelected government bureaucrat the power to strip the patent protection from such an invention and release it to other companies to produce.  In this manner they seek to lower the price of drugs.

The criteria for stripping such protection are:

  • The cost of the drug would impose financial burdens on potential users
  • There is an unmet need for such a drug

The first criteria would probably cover almost everyone when some of these drugs can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year.  It would certainly pertain to the poor who, often, are the ones who need such a drug the most.  This creates an incentive for companies to not bring drugs to market for the very people they might help the most.

The second criteria eliminates the primary reason drugs are developed and marketed – an unmet need that will consume large quantities of the product.

These two criteria, taken together, would probably mean that almost every new drug would be liable to having its patent protection arbitrarily stripped by a federal official.

This proposal clearly demonstrates the absolute lack of understanding of market and economics that the emotionally driven child-like liberals have.  With no way to make a profit on a development, why would a company invest the huge resources required into developing a new drug?  Such a law would destroy the drug industry in the U.S. and deprive the very people they seek to help of potentially life saving medicine.  More, it would mean that few, if any, new drugs would be developed in this country destroying an industry that contributes hundreds of billions of dollars to the economy.

This type of thinking and legislation is what we will see much more of from the new and radicalized Democrat House of Representatives.
