Defense Department commercial aircraft to bring formula into the United States from overseas.
How awful is the Baby Formula Crisis of 2022 for Democrats?
So bad that Biden invoked the Defense Product Act for a product that never should have been allowed to be in short supply.
Biden took steps on Wednesday to address the shortage of infant formula in the United States, invoking the Defense Production Act to help manufacturers obtain the ingredients needed to ramp up supply, the White House said.
Biden also directed U.S. agencies to use Defense Department commercial aircraft to bring formula into the United States from overseas.
Instead of focusing on military tasks and concentrating resources on tension-filled regions, the Pentagon will also have to do milk runs.
In a letter Wednesday to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture, Biden directed the agencies to work with the Pentagon to identify overseas supply of formula that meets U.S. standards over the next week, so that chartered Defense Department flights can swiftly fly it to the U.S.
“Imports of baby formula will serve as a bridge to this ramped-up production,” Biden wrote.
The CEO and corporate recovery expert responsible for turning around General Motors in 2009 blamed the Biden administration’s ‘bureaucratic bungling’ for the current crisis.
Turnaround CEO and Goldman Sachs alum Harry Wilson has spent the last 30 years rescuing companies on the brink of collapse by cutting wasteful spending and reorganizing inefficient corporate structures.
In 2009, during the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis, Wilson, a lifelong Republican, was brought in by the Obama administration as a senior adviser to the U.S. Department of the Treasury and led the turnaround of General Motors after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Now, as a candidate for governor of New York, Wilson is calling out both the Biden administration and corporate leaders for ‘failures’ that have exacerbated a baby formula shortage that came on the heels of a product recall at the Abbott plant in Michigan following reports of contamination and has sent parents of infants in all corners of the U.S. into a frenzy.
“Because of bureaucratic bungling, slowness and not dealing with the implications of an oversupply economy, we now have this tragic shortage that’s really hurting families across the country,” Harry Wilson told Fox News Digital.
The administration will want to tout this as an example of leadership. However, the integrity of that narrative is….questionable.
Biden administration last week: We’ve been doing everything possible to fix the baby formula problem.
Biden administration today: We are invoking the Defense Production Act to address the baby formula issue.
So they were obviously lying last week, will anyone ask about it?
