"Joe Biden has no plan," she said
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, the newest mother in the House, blasted the Biden admin for sending pallets of baby formula to the Southern border amid a nationwide shortage.
"The White House, House Democrats, and usual pedophile grifters are so out of touch with the American people that rather than present any plan or urgency to address the nationwide baby formula crisis, they double down on sending pallets of formula to the southern border. Joe Biden has no plan," she said.
Stefanik's comments come amid an ongoing shortage of baby formula in the United States and a scandal in which the Biden administration has been caught shipping pallets of the in-demand staple to the Southern border for the use of illegal immigrants.
The New York congresswoman previously sounded the alarm on the oncoming shortage in early February, a press release from her office highlighted.
Waiting months to recall baby formula while infants were hospitalized is unacceptable.
This may have been largely averted if the @US_FDA acted swiftly after initial reports of illness.

Stefanik's efforts to preemptively highlight the issue drew ire from liberals and moderate Republicans alike, with the Lincoln Project's Rick Wilson standing among her critics.
