“The infant formula shortage was foreseen,”— submitted to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, May 15, 2022 – not published
Severe shortages of vital infant formula rage across the USA. This shortage was foreseen months ago and the White House failed to act. In fact, the government has been instrumental in causing the shortage, according to the Wall Street Journal and other sources. Government labeling regulations, regulatory plant closures, tariffs, welfare distribution bureaucracy, and massive shipments to the Southern Border have all contributed to the problem; however, the Biden administration has failed to remediate this key problem, even with months of notice. Like Biden’s failure to invoke the Defense Production Act in a timely way to prevent shortages of Covid vaccines and test kits, the White House has been the main player in this new shortage. Let’s end one-party rule in Washington and remove incompetent incumbents at all levels.
