Your Saturday Cartoon:
On Wednesday, President Biden invoked the Defense Production Act to increase the production of baby formula and authorize flights to import supplies from overseas to ease the current shortage here. At the same time, the House of Representatives voted in favor of The Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act. The vote was 231 (All Democrats but only 12 Republicans) in favor. 192 Republicans voted against increasing the supply. It was yet another classic "Let them eat cake" moment by the House Republicans, politicians who call themselves Pro-Life and always scream and cry about protecting "the babies." Yep, the 192 "Pro-Lifers" voted against increasing the nation's supply of baby formula for the parents of newborns and they did it after blaming President Biden for the shortage instead of four years of Trump trade policies and the fact that one of the three makers of baby formula had a huge batch of contaminated formula. It doesn't get much more nihilistic than that. There was no question that the 192 would happily hear of some American babies having their developmental health impaired or dying so they could try to score some political points among their gullible voters.
Ah, but don't worry, whenever votes come up regarding making the supply of AR-15s and the bullet-filled magazines that go with them more readily available, you can always count on every republican to vote in the affirmative. They wouldn't want their White Supremacist jihadists to do without, would they?
