He laps that stuff up. Big corporations! Dividends! Stock buybacks!

Meanwhile, his big government allows the monopolies to happen. And, the FDA obviously doesn't know what they're doing, or they would have caught what Abbott was supposedly doing. But, by all means, big government is better.
Some leftist blog drivel, I swear these guys can’t think .

It’s been what, 9 months since the whistle blower? 3 or so months since shut down? Why did it take complete shortage and hungry babies for anything to be done? Why, after nothing was found linking the issue to the plant, has it remained closed?
Why was this not anticipated nor a plan put together months ago even in the off chance, which obviously happened, that a shortage would occur? What is the need for proposed additional funds for organizations that are already funded to deal with this type of issue?
Wait, wut?! So first, you Trump Cultists are posting about how peremptory and unfair the FDA has been in shutting down Abbott Laboratories' Sturgis, Michigan plant. But now, after you have been shown the error of your ways, and that said shut down was effected by Abbott Laboriories itself, and was voluntary, you are NOW complaining that it took too long to get the plant shut down?

The only thing funnier is the following statement from your fellow Trump Cultist:

Meanwhile, his big government allows the monopolies to happen.
So Democrats, not Republicans, are the party of the monopolists and big corporations in general. Who knew? Someone should tell Mitt Romney. ("Corporations are people!")

I also find if funny how how the cons are blaming he shortage on too much government regulation. They are now air shipping in formula from Europe to help alleviate the shortage in the US and Europe has much higher food type regulations than the US does.

How can these overregulated companies in Europe produce enough formula for Europe and have extra formula to send the the US?

This shipment does nothing to alleviate the shortage since it's all intended for special diet babies and based on Biden's own stats, will feed only 27k kids for 1 week. And none of it will end up on the shelves of Walmart or grocery stores.

The first shipment arrived last Sunday. The next one will arrive on Wednesday.

FedEx Express has secured a government contract to bring another shipment of infant formula to the U.S. on Wednesday, NBC News reported.​

Three years ago we could of airlifted formula now we need airlifts. Three years ago we were a net exporter of energy for the first time in over 60 years now we have record gasoline prices and we are using the strategic reserve to try to reduce costs. Three years ago we were at peace now Europe has armies on the March and there is serious talk of China attacking Taiwan.

The difference is we now have a 79 year old former moronic blowhard leading us and he is being led by the woke wing of the Democrat Party.
