Americans are already struggling with inflation sending the price of gas and many other goods and services through the roof and making a recession a very distinct possibility. Now, we have a nationwide shortage of baby formula that has sent parents scrambling to try to keep their young kids fed. According to Straight Arrow News contributor Newt Gingrich, these significant problems are an indictment of President Joe Biden and a White House that has no concept of what life is really like for most Americans:
You know, the Biden administration just doesn’t seem to understand reality at any level. The head of the program for foreign aid, Samantha Powers said, you know, the answer to the rising cost of fertilizer is to use manure and compost. So I wrote a good friend of mine who had been the U.S. representative to the World Food Organization. And he said that was just nuts because everybody already does manure and compost, but it gives you some sense of how desperate these people are that they can’t understand when you raise the price of oil and gas, you raise the price of fertilizer.
So it is the Biden war on the American oil and gas industry, which is raising the price of fertilizer and is frankly, in some countries, going to cause literally millions of deaths because the food production’s going to go down dramatically. Now, similarly, I just discovered the last couple days, there’s a shortage in baby formula.
Now the idea that the logistics supply chain is so totally screwed up, that we may literally have women…on Fox News, there was a woman who had had a double mastectomy for breast cancer and really needs baby formula for her new second baby and said, “It’s really hard to find.” And this administration of course, is totally out to lunch, has no idea what’s going on, has no solutions.
You know, I always tell people if you put eggs in the freezer, you can make them hard, but they’re not boiled eggs. And these guys, classic liberals, don’t understand that they follow policy after policy after policy, which makes life worse. And they’re usually rich enough and living, you know, or they’re college professors hidden away in some enclave, so they don’t experience how bad it is. But in fact, on every one of these fronts, things are getting worse, not getting better.
