Hawley Slams Bezos’s Billion-Dollar Bailout, MGM Purchase

Wednesday, May 26, 2021

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.

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.
