If you're going to get on the internet and criticize the Democrats maybe you should try criticizing the Republicans as well.

Would you like a list of the ones that voted Yes?

"The House passed a pair of bills Wednesday night aimed at combating the nationwide baby formula shortage as Democrats scramble to get more supplies on store shelves. The House voted 414-9 to approve a measure that would allow more formula to be purchased with money from a federal program that aids low-income women, infants and children. In a more partisan 231-192 vote, the House passed a bill that would send $28 million to the Food and Drug Administration to help boost formula supply and prevent future shortages. Only 12 Republicans voted for that measure. Both bills now head to the Senate.

Republicans voting against the bill bashed Biden for not doing more. Just what he, or Congress should do was not remarked upon.
They voted against the bill and held a press conference blaming Biden on the same day.

These people do not give a shit. They are not interested in helping Americans. Their entire ideology is fake.

Political posturing at its best. Increasing the problem at its worst.

What's the use of spending money so the government can buy up baby formula? How will this put more formula on the store shelves? Not only is this posturing, this is going to take what little formula there OFF the shelves.
Yes I can see why you'd be angry about the thing you just made the **** up

They deserve criticism for this and you're not giving it.

Of course, that's possibly because you fabricated your own reality about what the bill does. Nobody was expecting you to be honest here, buddy, so stop pretending you are.

So, the Republicans bitch about being vulnerable to shortages, then all but 12 vote against a bill to help prevent future shortages. Par for the course.
Or maybe they felt the measure was not the right path to the same end, increasing supply. Ever consider that?

And it will go to the Senate where it will die. While R candidates blame the D's for that as well.

If President Biden is responsible for inflation, supply chain issues and producing baby formula, it's amazing he has time to do anything else...

How can government purchase nonexistent baby formula? If it's being produced at all it belongs on store shelves not in government storage rooms to be dispensed as they see fit.

The GOP has been bellyaching about the FDA not doing enough about the problem however when the FDA requests funds to address the problem they refuse. These will be the same GOP'ers using the shortage as a campaign issue which is likely why they don't really want the problem solved...just like inflation.
In other words democrats should do something even if it's wrong.

I will give her credit. Rarely do they provide any solutions just gripe about the problem? However, there is no way that is a Bill designed to give relief now. That is a much more complex Bill that will take time to vet. The Bill the Dems based on was an emergency measures type bill, not a long-term solution. I'm not even sure there is a long-term problem that needs fixing. Nonetheless, I will give her credit for putting something forward.

Did they ask for an amendment?
