Nine Republicans in the House of Representatives have voted against a bill that aims to facilitate the purchase of baby formula for those on low-income federal support programs.
The Access to Baby Formula Act, also known as H.R. 7791, would allow low-income women to buy more baby formula through the federal Women, Infant and Children (WIC) program.
Biggs also used the same "crowding out" wording as Gaetz to explain his decision to vote against the Access to Baby Formula Act.
The Access to Baby Formula Act was one of two bills the House voted on on Wednesday that aimed to address the nationwide shortage.
The representatives also voted to pass the H.R.7790, the Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act, in a 231 to 192 vote.
The bill aims to provide $28 million in emergency supplemental appropriations to address the shortage of baby formula in the country.
Once again, all those who voted "no" on passing the bill were Republicans, including the nine who voted against the Access to Baby Formula Act. »
