Republican Representative Elise Stefanik of New York dropped the hammer on President Biden for what she calls his “baby formula scandal.”
“Stefanik said the Biden administration has continued to put out ‘false information’ to cover up its failures on the baby formula crisis plaguing the country,” reports Breitbart News.
Stefanik says that her office has been warning of the issue for months.
“This should have been caught earlier on, and Republicans, including my office, was sounding the alarm about this crisis back in February when there was an announcement that the Abbott plant in Sturgis, Michigan, was shut down,” she said.
Stefanik said that she had long ago reached out to the Food and Drug Administratio, which failed to respond to a congressional office until May.
“We now know from the CEO of Abbott that the FDA slow walked their approval to reopening that,” Stefanik said.
Stefanik accused the Biden administration of “putting out false information trying to cover up for their failures to identify where we were going to get supplies.”
“So they’ve been aware of this. They’ve done everything they could not to talk about this crisis. That’s how out of touch they are. They laughed about it. That was the first public sound coming out of this administration was the newly appointed press secretary was laughing about not knowing who is responsible for baby formula,” Stefanik said.
“It was only because that press conference that Joe Biden had to scramble and that day changed his schedule to set up a call with formula manufacturers to try to show any semblance of competency which is you know, far out the door for this administration. There is no plan from the Democrats,” she said.
“I think this is a much larger scandal than people realize,” Stefanik concluded.
