Biden Kills Trump’s Plan To Help Drug Addicts

In a move that has angered doctors and lawmakers from both sides of the political divide, Joe Biden has killed an opioid-treatment plan put in place by Donald Trump that many believed would be of great benefit for those fighting opioid addiction.

~~~~~~~~~~

The Biden administration said Wednesday that it is canceling a last-minute plan by the Trump administration to let more physicians prescribe an opioid-treatment drug, despite exhortations from lawmakers and physician groups to keep it...” according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. [emphasis added]

The Washington Post on Monday reported that Biden was moving to halt Trump’s last-minute plan, which would have exempted many physicians from the “X” waiver — a two-decade-old requirement, first mandated by Congress, to undergo a day’s training before they could prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. The Trump administration sought to go around Congress’s requirements by issuing new “clinical guidelines” that would have enabled doctors with a Drug Enforcement Administration narcotics prescribing license to avoid the training. [emphasis added]

Trump’s move was widely hailed by physicians, with the head of the American College for Emergency Physicians deeming it ‘a great day for our patients.‘… [emphasis added]

The Biden administration has been criticized by physicians and lawmakers since reports that the new president would halt Trump’s plan — particularly because as a candidate, Biden had criticized the prescribing rules and vowed to lift them if elected.” [emphasis added]

    buprenorphine is NOT an effective treatment for addiction. It is prescribed for pain relief. It “helps” with addiction in the same way morphine would. It’s just giving the addict their “fix” so they don’t get sick and keeps them coming back EVERY month for their script. Why wouldn’t you want your doctor to have to take a measly one day class before prescribing such a powerful medication? Not like you people care about addicts anyway, I’ve seen your comments and thoughts about them. No instead it’s just “Biden bad, must fight against Biden, orange man good”

  2. Slim says:

    Anything to please his communist friends. Biden is simply insane or really really stupid.

  3. camille says:

    Must be trying to kill more people since they now have the covid-19 vaccine.

  4. 1-Eddie-1 says:

    Beijing Biden says orange man bad! I must destroy everything he did! It’s not all good, but rather it’s all bad.
    It’s better to be quiet and be thought of as a fool, than it is to open your mouth and remove any doubt.

  5. Pegs says:

    What KILLS me is little joe biden called President Trump a dictator when he signed over 40 EO’s in 1 week!!! he is THE EPITOME of A DICTATOR!!! What NERVE he has!!! GOD HELP US ALL with him at the realm!!!

  6. Jerry says:

    Biden striking down Trump’s opioid addiction plan for doctors to be able to have doctors help addicts has endangered the lives of several millions of Americans seeking help from doctors to not be addicted. This means those people are endangered and will likely die because of Biden. What kind of President is this to be so stupid and ignorant to not want a program to help addicts just because the former President was a Republican? His hatred in no way will ever unify the people of this nation.

    • Paula M Mcmellion says:

      The Chinese are flooding the streets with fentanyl its almost like their wanting all of us dead.Biden is the last person to. All for unity he couldn’t care less. Why would he end an opioid treatment plan?

    • A true American says:

      It’s not an attack on “Trump”. It was an unsafe EO. Why shouldn’t a doctor HAVE to take a measly one day class before prescribing such a dangerous drug? Wouldn’t you want your doctor informed on any medication they are giving you?

  7. Curt Sahl says:

    Figures the addicts are already dependent on government Biden and Obama let the opioids flow freely and on purpose why would he be interested.

    • John Flynn says:

      I wonder if Hunter figures in the equation? An opioid, along with cocaine, may be the reason Biden is not in favor of this…..

  8. joyce says:

    I can’t figure how all those that are manipulating and taking advantage of his mental loss can look in the mirror and not feel extreem shame and disgust of themselves for their part in this charade. this is the democrats and this is what they want to make America into, no pride, no shame, just obey. We’re not all stupid we see who you are, what you are doing and we will not forget. IMHO

  9. Ally says:

    Biden needs recalled. Anyone out there want to start a recall petition?

  10. Gregory says:

    Such a vindictive politician…pandering to the will of the left…by any means necessary.

  11. William Duncan says:

  12. Robert Oldham says:

    Allowing china to access our Electrical Grid is Treason.

  13. Marty says:

    This is part of the dumbacratsgrand plan, keep the people stupid and depressed and drug addicted so they are fully dependent on the government. Horrible president and horrible socialist party!

  14. Al says:

    Worst president ever does not know what he’s doing, pedifile Joe has got to go!!!!

  15. M. C. Busby says:

    BidenM believes his name misspelled ; not Joe but Jesus

  16. Pudge says:

    They said Biden fell and hurt his leg while playing with his dog. WRONG!!!
    He was trying to get his head out of his ass.
    Also, I hope someone called it ,,, USA time of death,,12 noon January 20th 2021.

  17. AJM says:

    YOU WOULD THINK WITH A DRUG ADDICT FOR A SON, THIS FOOL WOULD AT LEAST CONSIDER THE BENIFITS OF THIS LAW………i DON’T BELIEVE HE UNDERSTANDS THREE QUATERS OF WHAT HE IS SIGNING…..

    • Yvonne corriher says:

      The only reason he is killing any of those Bill’s is.because our president Donald J. TRUMP SIGNED THEM INTO LAW.BIDEN IS NOTHING BUT A CONTROLED PUPPET FOR THEIR COMMUNIST LEADER NANCY PELOSI.

  18. Sharon says:

    Americans, we must turn to the support of Jesus and God our Father. I know there are those who read these comments that may not believe in what I just said, however, we all need something to believe in. Right now we all need to stand together as Americans and believe that what our country was built and founded on, which was God who is viable. We are the government, those people in the White House are our servants, not the other way around. We will not win through violence, or hatred, you see how far that has gotten us. People were so blinded by the hate the media dished out they did not think of anything else, now the price will be paid for that hatred.

    There is always a price to pay whether it be for good or evil!! There will always be the responsibility to accept, and consequences for our actions. Freedom came and comes with a price!! Everything is given free does not teach responsibility, where there is no cost there is greed, no consequence means no responsibility and without that, there is nothing but lawlessness. Think about it where are we right now, and how did we get here?

  19. Frank Steele says:

    Biden is a true jerk, and a stupid jerk, at that. He’s being led around like a pony at a kids’ birthday party. This, folks, is America as we know it now days. Sad, isn’t it?

    • Chris says:

      He’s a papier-mache Donkey pin~ata, full of toxic “sweeties” for those fool enough to ingest them. But pin~atas are made just to be BUSTED.
      One day that whack will come…
      Wonder if his puppet-masters will let him perch longer than William Henry Harrison (31 days, 1841)? Or will he set a new “personal Best”?
      He WEPT, leaving DE for DC, knowing he was going only to Walk the Plank, nosedive to the Sharks…

  20. Robert Paugh says:

  21. norma says:

    I agree with all the statements above, Biden is a sick man both mental and health wise. I hope all of everyone who voted for him is enjoying paying more taxes having more Americans unemployed and paying benefits to all non citizens of the USA. Hiding Biden is NOT my President President Trump Reigns……

  22. Susan M. Shelton says:

    We all know what’s going on here.Biden made it Very Clear. The whole corrupt & rebutled Clan,he pulled in, was backup.
    Id be more interested in knowing “WHY”
    did people Vote them in, anyway ?! What Rational Minded beings would want a Communistic Country & for our Families,
    & Loved ones ?!?!Here’s the Guilty !!

  23. rick says:

    Bite-me strikes again! The leader of the Criminalocracy can’t keep his thieving hands off of anything that does good for people. Hope everyone who voted for this crook enjoys the next 4 years of tyranny!

  24. GRIZZ MANN says:

    The Bidenreich must keep Hunter out of the news, except for a bagel run.

  25. Slim says:

    Biden’s stupidity on public display. Maybe his partner will soon have him committed.

  26. bruce says:

    Once again it seems to be hate and vindictiveness, not science or just seeing something as being a good thing and keeping it. Trump reduced insulin costs for diabetics.How is that bad? Its not. This is hateful and wrong decisions made out of some ignorant sense of anything Trump is bad …Pitiful and Painful for our country.

  27. Bobby says:

    Just another hate crime by the “uniter” He has also taken away the price of insulin that our REAL PRESIDENT lowered to help all of the diabetics who’s lives depend on it. ANYTHING that has PresidentTrumps signature on it this joker makes sure he overturns. He and the rest of the demonrats are so filled with hate and rage that it has consumed their hearts and souls. They are so hell bent to ruin his life and everyone else’s that do not agree with them. I hope our republicans grow a set and get them out of office. OUR very lives and freedom depend on it

  28. Earl says:

    Everything they have done has been child acking. Because Trump put things in play they are removed. Not because it needed done just because Trump did it

  29. Susan Davis says:

    I tend to be apolitical – but it’s getting harder and harder to accept this new non-thinking power-wielder in the White House. He is being very reckless, and seems to be on a mission to “correct” anything and everything our former President did for the good of Americans – just because! Sadly, this is proof positive that Biden lacks clear thinking and harbors much hatred in his heart. This is no way to rule the great country called the United States.

  30. Robie says:

    He is the most idiotic Pedro in the WHITE house MENTAL. He needs to take his head out of his a$$$$

  31. Mjm says:

    Biden has no clue what he is signing. He just signs whatever his puppet masters put in front of him. What a F’n idiot. NOT MY PRESIDENT !!!!

  32. Cg says:

    Biden is not calling the shots.He has a bunch of trash heaping fools doing his dirty work.Republicans will have to comeback stronger and fight this socialist party 🗑.

  33. Jared says:

    It is time that we remove this communist from the White House….since he cheated to win. He wants to keep the addicts addicted, deny prosperity to the people of this great country, give all of our money to illegal aliens, remove our freedom of speech, freedom to meet, and take away our 2nd amendment.
    We need to remove him….NOW!!!
    in just over a week, he has killed over 60000 jobs, trying to force us into hiding and take a vaccine…..all for a virus that is total BS!!! Wake up America….before it is too late!

    • A true American says:

      buprenorphine is HIGHLY addictive. It’s used for treating PAIN and can treat opioid dependency because it’s a pain medication! It’s not used for TREATMENT just to keep addicts addicted and coming back EVERY month for their fix

  34. Susanne says:

    I would have though Biden would approve of Trump’s plan since his son Hunter has had issues with opioids. Go figure. Just more evidence that Biden cannot think clearly and has little to no interest in helping people overcome addiction. Shameful!!
