Does Anyone Know If Joe Biden Fixed the Baby Formula Crisis Yet?
Making sure that American babies don’t go hungry on his watch is Joe Biden’s tippy-top priority. It doesn’t get much more basic than that, does it?
Keeping the babies fed should come as naturally to an administration as riding a bike (hah!). If you can’t keep your babies fed, then your country has really slipped into Third World dysfunctional status.
Remember when we had a baby formula crisis earlier this year and Joe Biden vowed to fix it because the adults are in charge now? How is Joe Biden’s repair of the baby formula crisis that he caused going? Oh, dear. Well, this is embarrassing. It turns out that the crisis is actually worse today than it’s been at any point previously.
The federal government under Joe Biden is actually papering the problem over a little bit right now. It might look like there’s more formula on the shelves at your local store some of the time. But unless you pay attention to these things, you probably haven’t noticed that there are a lot fewer types of formula available. There were close to 30 types of formula on the shelves the day that Donald Trump left office, for example, but today there are 5 if your local store is lucky.
And the numbers are actually worse than they were just a few months ago when moms were rushing their hungry babies to the emergency room because they couldn’t find formula anywhere. For the week ending May 27, back when Joe Biden swore he’d fix this problem, stores were 23.7% out of stock. For the week ending July 10, the number was 28.3% out of stock. The problem is far worse today than it was a few weeks ago, even though the problem looks like it’s getting better in some places.
The Biden regime’s catchy name to fix this problem that they caused, and which they hope makes them look like the big heroes, is truly embarrassing: Operation Fly Formula. This is an operation that should never have been needed in the first place, you know, but at least there are no more mean tweets.
And it’s totally not embarrassing to need Germany to fly 1.5 million bottles of formula to Texas this week. Or for Australia to have to fly 5.5 million bottles of formula to Los Angeles and Philadelphia this week. Or for Mexico to have to fly – good grief – 16 million bottles of formula to the US.
Hey, isn’t Mexico that dysfunctional country that’s lost millions of citizens to an ongoing drug war? And they’re still able to make so much baby formula that they’ve got a surplus that they can send to the USA? Your administration might be totally incompetent if…
Not to belabor the point, but back when Donald Trump was in office, parents were purchasing an average of 24 different types of formula every week (I had no idea). Industry analysts say that today, parents are buying an average of 11 kinds of formula bottles weekly, because there’s no variety available like there used to be.
And once again, Joe Biden is blaming parents for the shortage. The regime says that it’s the fault of parents, because they’re back to hoarding formula. Well, yes, NOW THEY ARE!
Because that’s what families would do when their leaders are so incompetent that they can’t keep food on the shelves for babies. Anyone who can afford it is going to stock up when you’re being led by buffoons. If you’re at the store and you spot some formula, you’re buying it for yourself or for your neighbor or for your little baby niece or nephew or grandchild – because that’s what we do when there are shortages of something. We look out for each other like that, because we all know that government is A) incompetent on its best day, and B) not really going to look out for us when the chips are down.
The mainstream media has gone back to pretending that the Joe Biden Baby Formula Crisis has been all fixed, but it hasn’t. The problem is still here and despite what it looks like, the store shelves are emptier than they were a couple of months ago. And our standard of living is getting much, much worse under this guy.
