Rep. Stefanik claims Biden admin knew about baby formula shortage for 3 months

The Biden administration, which has somehow let infant formula supplies run nearly completely dry in the richest and most powerful country on the planet, want you to believe that such a situation developed overnight, out of nowhere. President Biden said as much in a speech this week.

However, as with most critical issues that are botched by the current administration, it turns out, according to Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), that the Biden administration is lying once again, Breitbart reports

Remember how the Biden administration claimed that the Afghanistan-Taliban situation came out of nowhere, and the Russian troop buildup on the Ukraine border happened so suddenly? Both of those claims were also false, as many had predicted both scenarios as playing out as they did.

According to Stefanik, the Biden administration has known about the potential for a baby formula crisis since as early as February.

“Mind-readers”

Biden dismissed a reporter this week who asked if his administration could have foreseen the baby formula shortage and acted to correct it before it became an actual crisis like it is now.

“If we’d been better mind-readers I guess we could have,” President applesauce brains replied, again deflecting even an ounce of responsibility.

Biden added: “We moved as quickly as the problem became apparent to us,” he continued, adding, “we have to move with caution as well as speed because we got to make sure what we’re getting is, in fact, first-rate product – that’s why the [Food and Drug Administration] has to go through the process.”

Stefanik drops the bomb

The New York Republican told Breitbart that Biden’s White House has been well aware of the potential for a crisis on the baby formula front for a staggering three months, yet only began to take action in the past week or so.

“They’ve known this has been an issue for months. I sounded the alarm and reached out to the FDA in February of this year, after the recall of the Sturgis, Michigan, [Abott Nutrition] manufacturing facility, and we got no substantive response from the FDA,” Stefanik said.

She added: “There was absolutely no plan from this administration about how to address that supply chain issue, which has now created even more of a crisis.”

“If you compare the failure of Joe Biden to the success of President Trump, in cutting through the red tape of the FDA when it came to Operation warp speed – Joe Biden’s been asleep at the switch.”

This situation, which affects parents of all political stripes, will undoubtedly be the final nail in the coffin in the 2022 midterm elections. Imagine being a Democratic candidate right about now — it might be a good idea to wait a term to run until the dementia-ridden Biden is out of office.
