President Biden pledges to cut prescription drug costs during speech in Irvine

IRVINE, Calif. (KABC)– President Joe Biden ended his two-day visit to Southern California Friday afternoon at Irvine Valley College, where he focused on inflation and helping families struggling with the rising cost of goods.

During a speech that lasted about 20 minutes, the President spoke about the health care system.

He focused on what his government is doing to reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

He touted his Anti-Inflation Act as a way to ease the pain people are feeling in their wallets.

Also, Biden doubled down on his fight against Big Pharma.

To mark the start of Medicare open enrollment season, Biden said he plans to sign an executive order directing the Department of Health and Human Services to study ways to reduce prescription drug costs.

He said healthcare costs are driving up inflation but promises families he’s working to help them save money.

“We’re making progress,” said the President.

Biden had a busy schedule in Southern California.

On Thursday he was in Los Angeles, where he spoke about his government’s investments in the country’s infrastructure at a future metro construction site.

He also attended a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser in Brentwood Thursday night.

Biden continues his West Coast tour this weekend.

Next he flies to Portland.
