Van Drew votes NO on housekeeping bill to address infant formula crisis
Republican Congressman Continues To Fail NJ Families
TRENTON, NJ – The New Jersey Democratic State Committee issues the following statement after Republican Congressman Jeff Van Drew voted against the Infant Formula Supplementary Appropriations Act last night, which would provide funding for urgency to address the shortage of infant formula in the United States. Each of New Jersey’s Democratic congressmen voted for the bill.
“As Democrats move quickly to pass legislation that would help families and address the baby formula shortage, Jeff Van Drew is once again proving he has no interest in helping New Jersey families trying to feed their babies,” NJDSC Vice President Peg Schaffer said. . “The fact that Van Drew voted against a bill to address the nationwide formula shortage tells you everything you need to know about Jefferson Van Drew. The vote was ruthless, inhumane and consistent with its new home in the ultra-MAGA wing of the Republican Party. While Republicans like Van Drew are voting against real solutions, Democrats are focusing on providing the resources to help address the baby formula shortage and working to cut costs on everything from gas to groceries. .
This “no” vote is the latest in a long line of Van Drew actively working against real solutions to the problems faced by New Jerseyans. Earlier this year, Van Drew joined 193 House Republicans in voting against capping the cost of insulin at $35 a month, while all New Jersey Democrats backed the bill. Plus, every Republican in Congress — including Van Drew and Chris Smith — voted against the U.S. bailout, which saved New Jerseyans money on everything from health care premiums rent or mortgage, child care costs, and more.
