Insuline prices would have been limited to $35/month as part of the Build Back Better Act, but we all know how that ended after Manchin pulled his support.

Biden also rolled back the previous administrations executive order making providers price insulin reasonably, so there is that....

Didn't the former president sign something to cap insulin prices? And that legislation was removed recently?

Nope.

What Biden did was to freeze the implementation of all federal rules created but not yet put into effect by the previous administration for 60 days.

This is a pretty standard practice to prevent having to deal with a poisoned well left behind by your predecessor.

It has been more than 60 days. And it hasn't been re-emplimented. What is your point here?

And it was emplemented by the previous administration.

Left, right, idgaf. It was in place, now it isnt.
