During an interview on Newsmax TV on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) reacted to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce by announcing that it will hold hearings on national formula shortages on 25 May wondering how there can be “this kind of delay on something as important as infant formula” and “We’ve had scheduling issues” in Congress since the day he took office.
Rosendale said, “We’ve had scheduling issues since the day I was sworn in, and I couldn’t run my businesses the way Democrats run Congress right now, and for us to being that kind of behind on something as important as formula. It’s not like infants can have some sort of substitute. Adults, okay, we might not like it, but we can change the kinds of things we eat in our diets. We could struggle through. You cannot do this with infants. I have a grandchild who was just born less than 30 days ago and I’m in big trouble. It’s very personal to me about what’s going to happen in the world with these infant formula supplies.
