A lot of commenters and amateur online pundits think they understand conservative arguments but they're mostly just parroting chatter they heard from smarter people . . . Poorly.
Agree or disagree . . . There's no denying that Pete Mundo has a better understanding of present day conservatism than any other local talker.
Moreover . . .
His key to success is that he has been able to balance right-wing ideas with mainstream appeal.
As we've proven many times . . .
Any dolt can go off on a rant . . . But only a skilled pro can earn an income articulating conservative arguments in a donation-based local media landscape that's incredibly hostile to any right-wing or alternative opinion.
However . . .
Pete's recent posting on the baby formula issue irked some of our smarter readers. The common theme . . . Republicans haven't helped to solve the crisis.
Accordingly . . .
We're sharing some of the better, smarter and exceptional news links sent our way by savvy readers:
Nine Republicans vote "no" on bill that would help low-income parents access baby food amid shortage
Nine House Republicans voted against a bipartisan bill to help low-income mothers access baby food amid the national formula shortage. The bill, dubbed the "Access to Baby Formula Act" (HR 7791), was passed with 414 "yes" votes.
Placeholder while article actions load House GOP leaders were among the 192 Republicans who voted against providing $28 million in aid to the Food and Drug Administration to address the shortage of baby formula - within days of criticizing President Biden for not doing enough on the issue.
According to conservatives, the formula-shortage crisis isn't worth urgently addressing. In the midst of a full-blown crisis for parents who need formula to feed their children, more than 90% of House Republicans decided on Wednesday that the shortage that has led to panic and despair is not actually that big a deal, with 192 (out of 208) GOP lawmakers voting against an emergency spending bill meant to address the terrifying situation.
