Rep. Kat Cammack Calls Out Buttigieg For Lying About Baby Formula Fiasco

Recently, Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) hurled criticism at Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg along with calling him a liar for his claims that the Biden administration has “acted from day one after the recall” of baby formula.

This past Sunday, Buttigieg claimed that “The administration acted from day one after the recall, taking steps like creating more flexibility for the WIC program to help rebalance the availability of formula in the States,” while making comments on “Face The Nation” by CBS.

Cammack shot back during his appearance on  Fox Business’ “Mornings With Maria,” stating, “To the Secretary of Transportation’s remarks that they have been on top of this from day one: That is a lie.”

Cammack highlighted that she had received heavy criticism after she posted text messages and images she said were sent from agents of the Border Patrol showing stockpiles of baby formula that was intended for illegal immigrants.

“Yesterday I was on the border myself, and the facts on the border are exactly how we have been stating them,” she claimed. “I decided to go down myself and film it. Lo and behold, not only was there stocked warehouses, but there were multiple stocked warehouses that have been not only filled with baby formula and diapers and wipes and clothing, but they have been doing this for months and there’s more en route.”

Current federal law stipulates that all children in custody must be provided with food, including baby formula.

While seemingly making reference ot the claims from Buttigieg that the administration had “acted from day one,” she exclaimed, “They canceled 43% of this manufacturer’s production with no plan to backfill that market share that they make up. So, how have they been on top of this?”

“Moms for months have been saying it was getting harder and harder to find formula,” she continued. “This is just another example of the broken administration that doesn’t know how to govern.”

Cammack also higlighted the videos and photos from her trip to the facility located along the broder. “One image showed mounds of infant formula featuring handwritten dates, likely to denote expiration, of June 2023,” stated The Daily Mail via a report.

Buttigieg had also slung blame at Abbott Nutrition for the shortages in formula, stating, “Fundamentally, we are here because a company was not able to guarantee that its plant was safe, and that plant has shut down.”

“Let’s be very clear,” he concluded. “This is a capitalist country. The government does not make baby formula, nor should it. Companies make formula, and one of those companies — a company which, by the way, seems to have 40 percent market share — messed up and is unable to confirm that a plant, a major plant, is safe and free of contamination.”
