They want answers right now.
House Republicans are now demanding President Biden and his administration to give them answers about how they plan to solve the current baby formula shortage because they believe the White House simply isn’t doing enough.
According to Fox, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers stated, “We are asking the questions, we’ve been raising the alarm to President Biden for months. We’ve been seeing the empty shelves, we’ve been seeing the rising cost on families.”
McMorris Rodgers then said, “We also have concerns about the Abbott recall and how it is impacting shortages. On behalf of every parent and caregiver who is unsure as to whether they will be able to feed their children, we need answers and we need accountability.”
Abbott Nutrition recently had a major recall on their infant formula and had to shut down after two infants died due to a bacterial infection.
Republican House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik stated, “House Democrats’ plan is to have a hearing two weeks from now. I can tell you as a new mom, families and moms and dads and babies can’t wait two weeks. It needs to be happening now.”
Stefanik added, “This administration should be looking at everything and anything. We have heard absolutely nothing.”
