All the Worst Republican Reps Voted Against Helping Low-Income Families During the Baby Formula Shortage

Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, and Marjorie Taylor Greene sit in the House chamber, looking to the side.

The House voted on two bills Wednesday night aimed at addressing the ongoing baby formula shortage. They both passed, no thanks to a bunch of Republicans who chose to vote against them. Because there’s nothing the “pro-life” party hates more than actually helping families and children post-birth.

The first bill provides $ 28 million in emergency spending funds to the FDA to prevent future shortages. “The FDA plays a critical role in ensuring formula provides the full nutritional needs of infants and that it is manufactured in the safest way possible. We must ensure that a lack of funding is not a barrier to getting safe formula to parents and babies. The bill before us does just that,” said the bill’s sponsor, Democratic Rep. Rosa DeLauro from Connecticut during debate.
