Business Insider names and shames the Republicans who voted to keep poor mothers from feeding their babies – twitchy.com


- Advertisment -

As we noted in another post, Rep. Eric Swalwell is doing his Twitter trolling thing again by asking you to imagine being “pro-life” and against providing baby formula. Business Insider is going a step further and naming and shaming the nine Republicans who “voted against a bill that would help poor families buy baby formula.”

Cheryl Teh reports:

Nine Republicans voted against a bill in Congress that would help lower-income women secure baby formula for their children.

Many Republicans crossed party lines to vote for HR 7791, the Access to Baby Formula Act, which passed the House on Wednesday with 414 “yes” votes. However, the bill — which comes amid a crisis where parents are struggling to procure baby formula for their children — was voted down by nine Republican lawmakers.

The “no” votes were cast by GOP Reps. Andy Biggs, Lauren Boebert, Thomas Massie, Clay Higgins, Matt Gaetz, Chip Roy, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert, and Marjorie Taylor Greene. The bill now goes to a vote in the Senate.

According to The Hill, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise urged Republican members to vote no on HR 7790, arguing that Speaker Nancy Pelosi was pushing the bill forward “in hopes of covering up the administration’s ineptitude by throwing additional money at the FDA with no plan to actually fix the problem, all while failing to hold the FDA accountable.”

Maybe Scalise was onto something.

NBC News was also on the case:

Of the $28 million, $23 million goes to FDA salaries? How does that help poor mothers buy baby formula that doesn’t exist?
