“The View” host Joy Behar said Monday that all Republicans “really care about” is making President Biden look bad during a conversation about the baby formula shortage, adding that inflation and high gas prices were not on him.
“In May, 192 Republicans voted against easing the baby formula shortage with $28 million in emergency spending. Only 12 voted with the Dems,” Goldberg said, adding that former President Donald Trump “made sure we can’t get baby formula from Canada because the trade rules that he put in, in the US/Mexico/Canada agreement punished Canadian companies if they export too much baby formula here.”

Goldberg also said, “thank God” that they closed the Abbott plant after recalling several types of formula, which were linked to illnesses in infants. She slammed the “monopoly” the plant had over the baby formula market and said that Republicans “could have stopped this from happening.”
Behar said that Republicans were voting against “the best interests of their constituencies” and that all they care about is making Biden look bad.

“I think that parents are just frustrated by anything partisan having to do with this, because I want to know how to feed my kid,” Granger said. “And I just am asking for some guidance from the FDA and President Biden who knew that was pandemic was happening, knew there were short of supplies and knew that parents were stockpiling, then knew that Abbott closed down.
