Right to try.

For me this is common sense. If you are about to die and want to live then do what you need to do. This is NOT bending over for big pharmaceutical & big business in general. Kudos to t he President.

Not just trying to argue for arguments sake but Trump really didn't do anything here.

He made it so the FDA wouldn't hold back a person from getting an experimental drug when all other options are gone. The fact is that in recent years the FDA has approved 5,816 cases out of 5,849 or 99.4% of the cases the FDA has seen. In instances where end-of-life attempts are rejected is by the drug companies that for one reason or another don't want to give the drugs to people.

What I am saying is that he is solving a problem that doesn't really exist....or will not change the number of people who are refused treatment. Drug companies can still say no to prospective people.

I am not against it, I just see it as an opportunity for him to grandstand......and I can't stand the thought of giving him more reasons.
