Fitzgerald Demands FTC Neutrality on Antitrust Enforcement

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Scott Fitzgerald (WI-05) sent a letter to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chairwoman Lina Khan concerning the FTC’s decision to rollback nonpartisan competition practices, opening the door for the regulator to implement ESG criteria.

“The FTC is intended to be an independent agency above the partisan fold. However, the latest decision to politicize antitrust enforcement demonstrates the erosion of neutrality and reliability of objective competitive markets and consumer protection at the commission, said Congressman Scott Fitzgerald. Chairwoman Khan must reconsider their latest action and protect the integrity of the agency.”

Co-signers: Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Rep. Tom Tiffany (WI-07), Rep. Warren Davidson (OH-08), Rep. Byron Donalds (FL-19), Rep. Michelle Fischbach (MN-07), Rep. Greg Steube (FL-17), Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-01), Rep. Randy Weber (TX-14), Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21), Rep. Doug Lamborn (CO-05), Rep. Matt Rosendale (MT-AL).

    I had a hard time understanding what this clown was trying to say in this press release. But I saw yesterday that the FTC might actually block a merger between Microsoft and Activision. I can’t remember the last time a high profile merger wasn’t approved. (I’m sure everyone remembers when AOL bought Time Warner. And who can forget Hungry Man’s ravenously hostile takeover of Dinty Moore beef stew).
