Democrats have been instructing President Biden to reverse or pause policies put in place under former President Donald Trump, including one designed to bring down the price of insulin. The Department of Health and Human Services announced that the directive would be put on hold among a number of other measures that were passed under Trump.
Democrats can’t wait to tank the economy and destroy the dollar
The measure aimed to require some community health centers to deliver savings to low-income patients for insulin and epinephrine in a bid to bring down unaffordable prices. The rule was scheduled to go into effect on Friday but has since been delayed until March 22. White House chief of staff Ron Klain directed agencies to pause orders signed towards the end of Trump’s term so they could be reviewed.
The order directs the administration to immediately withdraw rules that have been sent to the Office of Financial Research but not yet published in the Federal Register. For those that have been published, but are not yet effective, members are directed to “consider postponing the rules’ effective dates for 60 days.”

WHERE IS JOE BIDEN?

Gas, food, drug prices rise under the Biden regime
President Biden’s “hostile administration” will also cause problems as it pertains to gas prices, former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister warned on “Mornings with Maria” Thursday.
West Texas Intermediate crude oil ticked up $1.06 to $62.34 per barrel on Thursday as OPEC leaders and their allies reviewed supply cuts.
The recent rally in oil markets has pushed crude prices to their highest levels since near the start of the coronavirus pandemic, fueled by recovering demand and production cuts.
“The reason gasoline is coming back up is we’ve been in a shutdown period for many of the refineries and so that puts a squeeze on what’s available in terms of final product,” Hofmeister told host Maria Bartiromo.
Gas prices have been increasing at the pump for the past few weeks, reaching a national average of $2.75 a gallon as of Thursday, which is 33 cents higher than the same time in 2020, according to AAA.
