Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) called out the Senate's proposed $10 billion bailout for Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO, included in a bill to increase U.S. competitiveness over China.
Senator Hawley also criticized Amazon's purchase of MGM, saying the "sale should not go through," highlighting their monopoly status.
Why is the Senate preparing to give @amazon’s Jeff Bezos a $10 billion bailout? https://t.co/xrpFTAPtLl— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 26, 2021
This sale should not go through. @amazon is already a monopoly platform that owns e-commerce, shipping, groceries & the cloud. They shouldn’t be permitted to buy anything else. Period. https://t.co/YyOdQ6iWPQ— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 26, 2021
Last month, Senator Hawley introduced the Trust-Busting for the Twenty-First Century Act, and the Bust Up Big Tech Act. New legislation that would hold woke mega-corporations -- like Amazon -- accountable, reign in monopoly power, and put power back into the hands of the American people.
