Every Georgia Republican in Congress last night voted against a bill to help alleviate baby formula shortages
Last night, every single Georgia Republican in Congress voted against the Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act, which would provide emergency funding to address the shortage of infant formula in the United States. Every Georgia Democrat voted for the bill. In response, the Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statement:
“While Democrats are moving quickly to pass legislation that would help families and address the shortage of baby formula, Georgia Republicans are all talk and no action when it comes to making sure we have the resources necessary to deal with this shortage. This vote is yet another example of how Georgia Republicans aren’t interested in actually taking action to address the current formula shortfall and prevent this from happening again – they’re more interested in using Georgia families’ struggles for their own political gain and pushing their radical, ultra-MAGA agenda,” said Rebecca Galanti, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “While Georgia Republicans are pointing fingers and voting against solutions, Democrats are laser-focused on providing the resources to help Georgia address the infant formula shortage, and working to lower costs on everything from gas to groceries.”
Georgia Republicans’ “no” vote is the latest in their long pattern of actively working against solutions. Earlier this year, all Georgia Republicans voted against capping the cost of insulin at $35 a month, while every Georgia Democrat supported the bill. Additionally, every congressional Republican voted against the American Rescue Plan, which has saved Georgians money on everything from their health care premiums to rent or mortgage to child care costs, and more.
