Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack, Florida, took a trip to the US-Mexican border to show on video the piles of baby formula that the Biden administration is sending formula to the border facilities while America faces a shortage.
See the video below.
She appeared on Fox News this morning to discuss what she found in the warehouses.
“This just points again to how out of touch this administration is and they could stop this with a simple policy change,” she said Monday.
Rep. Cammack was accused of lying about the formula being sent to the border facility when she posted pics last week showing shelves of formula at a processing center. Next News covered that then here.
In response, the congresswoman visited the border facilities herself and found shelves of formula among other infant supplies at the food processing center.
The Republican branded the shortage is just another example of how Biden can’t solve the nation’s problems.
“This just points again to how out of touch this administration is and they could stop this with a simple policy change,” she said Monday about the video.
The representative escorted border agents and captured videos of the facility showing pallets filled with boxes filled with baby formula and supplies.
She also showed migrants at the facility using the supplies.
The Republican called U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg a liar and criticized his handling of the shortage.
“And to the Secretary of Transportation’s remarks that they have been on top of this from day one: That is a lie,” she said.
“They canceled 43 percent of this manufacturer’s production with no plan to backfill that market share that they make up,’ Cammack said. ‘So, how have they been on top of this? Because moms for months have been saying it was getting harder and harder to find formula.”
Buttigieg blamed the crisis on Abbott Nutrition the largest formula supplier in the country.
“Fundamentally, we are here because a company was not able to guarantee that its plant was safe, and that plant has shut down,” he said.
Do you think Biden is handling the formula shortage?
