An ever-shrinking group of woke mega-corporations control the products Americans can buy, the information Americans receive, the speech Americans can engage in, the books Americans can read, and the jobs Americans can obtain.
These monopoly powers control our speech, our economy, our country — and their control has only grown because Washington has aided and abetted their quest for more power. While Big Tech, Big Banks, Big Telecom, and Big Pharma gobbled up more companies and more market share, they gobbled up our freedom and competition.
This happened because globalists hijacked our anti-trust policy and laws. Mega-corporations allied with Washington to prioritize cheap goods in China ahead of the American people. And Washington handed the keys to Big Tech behemoths to take over our digital economy and public square.
We need a trust-busting agenda for the 21st century that puts power back into the hands of the American people. We have to make it easier for enforcers to break up megafirms, crack down on mergers and acquisitions by monopoly companies, strengthen antitrust enforcement to pursue the breakup of dominant, anticompetitive firms.
Solutions for the 21st Century
"If you allow corporations to amass significant economic power through market concentration, they are going to have political power, and they're going to use it."
Senator Josh Hawley
For years, Big Tech has gone unchecked due to inaction, weak enforcement, and a lack of accountability at the Federal Trade Commission. U.S. Senator Josh Hawley is proposing to overhaul the agency by restructuring it to meet the needs of today’s digital markets.
