ABC’s “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin said Tuesday that Republicans had blocked legislation introduced by the Biden administration in an effort to curb inflation, lower gas prices and solving the infant formula crisis.

“I’ve often said, you know, what the platform of the Republican Party is, because they don’t necessarily work on solutions, they work on problems. So they block a lot of legislation from the Biden administration trying to solve our problems, like inflation, trying to solve our gas price problems, trying to solve formula problems. They vote against all these bills. Now we kind of know so what is the platform,” she said.

The hosts of “The View” were discussing the Texas GOP platform, including a Texas secession vote and strong opposition to gun control.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX., was booed at the Texas GOP convention for negotiating with other senators to pass gun control legislation.

Hostin said, “If you’re interested in the Affordable Care Act, if you’re interested in universal kindergarten, if you’re interested in reducing inflation, if you’re interested in health care, to the elderly, then you vote Democrat.”

Guest host Lindsey Granger argued that the Texas GOP platform was “not indicative of the entire Republican Party.” She said that “universally we support background checks, universally 70% of Americans support gay marriage,” she said.

Hostin maintained that Republican senators would never vote for background checks.

JOY BEHAR GIVES BIDEN A PASS ON BABY FORMULA SHORTAGE, INFLATION AND GAS PRICES: ‘A GLOBAL PROBLEM’

“We support background checks and we’re taking action because, like we said the other day, we’re not going to let the perfect bet be the enemy of the good. And we have good gun reform to fire on the table, with red flag laws and background checks being taken care of and so we should start with that,” Granger said.

“Limited background checks,” Hostin said.

Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar blamed Biden and his administration for inflation, gas prices and the infant formula crisis.

Goldberg said on May 18 that gas prices aren’t high because of “everything Biden has done” and that it was just going to be something he absorbs.

She also said the baby formula shortage was not on him.

The House passed two bills in an effort to address the formula shortage in May, one passed 414-9 and the other passed 231-192. Only 12 Republicans voted with the majority on the second bill because, they argued, a solution to the problem was missing.

The bill provides $28 million in emergency funds to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) so it can deal with future shortages and the current shortage. It also includes efforts to “prevent fraudulent products from entering the US market.”
