Pro-birth, not pro-life.
At the citizen level it is. At the political level it’s actually not pro-birth. GOP congressmen still need some votes to get elected. The pro-birth citizens are a guaranteed vote if their congressmen will “protect babies” for some or punish “sluts” for others.

So in short GOP congressmen just need a group they to hurt so other shitty people will vote for them so they can remain in power to get money from their rich bosses.

Those aren't pro-life republicans.
Look at the names involved.
"Andy Biggs, Lauren Boebert, Thomas Massie, Clay Higgins, Matt Gaetz, Chip Roy, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert, and Marjorie Taylor Greene. "

That's the special needs section of congress

Fuck the Republican party. If they want to vote against the bill then fine, whatever. But don't fucking vote against the bill and then NOT propose your own solution. This is not a fucking game. People literally cannot find baby formula and their babies are going hungry.

Their solution is to blame Biden 24/7 and make sure the problems don't get fixed so the blame Biden some more.

Honestly I don't know what's in this proposal or if it directly addresses the problem, but you are 100% correct that it helps NOBODY when there's no counter proposal. This isn't a time to score political points or bolster your voting record against Biden - try to be part of a solution for once.

Or do we need to let the invisible hand of the free market take care of this, too?

Not that it matters, but I'm just curious if they gave a reason why?

Senate Republicans also seemed wary of spending new money, so the ultimate fate of the Democrats’ biggest legislative effort to fix the formula shortage was uncertain.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) sent out a memo on Wednesday urging his members to vote “no” on the bill. He said Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) proposed the legislation “in hopes of covering up the administration’s ineptitude by throwing additional money at the FDA with no plan to actually fix the problem, all while failing to hold the FDA accountable.”

GOP leaders also claimed that some of their proposals to address the scarcity were ignored by Democrats.

Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) on the House floor characterized the legislation as “reckless spending.”

“I rise in opposition tonight to H.R. 7790, the Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act, a bill that just continues the majority’s reckless spending spree without actually fixing the infant formula crisis this administration caused,” he said.


Deplorables.
Got to keep the poors poor.

Remember when many of them voted against Ukraine support claiming "Why are we sending money there when we can't feed babies here?" Everything they do or say is just bad faith.

The only consistency I can find for them is treason.

Their solution is to let Natural Selection decide. If you survive long enough to have BC-Free Sex and procreate, you have fulfilled your purpose.
