President #Trump to issue emergency declaration to help hapless #opioid addicts

Once again, drug loving Americans and their dope peddlers at PhRMA have made things pretty much unbearable in America.

In the absence of any leadership in Congress, the President has decided to take action.

President Trump plans to direct the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday to declare a limited 90-day public health emergency in response to the deadly opioid epidemic, according to senior administration officials.

Administration officials say they hope Congress will provide more funding in a spending bill later this year, though officials would not say how much money the White House is seeking.

“This is an urgent priority for the president,” one senior administration official said Thursday.
