FTC Chair Lina Khan Says “Bah Humbug!” To Small Business Saturday Deals

WASHINGTON – As millions of Americans prepare to score amazing deals on one of the biggest shopping days of the year, Competitiveness Coalition Chair Scott Brown issued the following statement: 

“You would think supporting the millions of small businesses participating in Small Business Saturday would be a priority for our leaders, but if Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chair Lina Khan and her cronies succeed on their misguided crusade against the tech sector, prepare to fork over extra cash and be left holding an empty bag. Chair Khan is a cold-hearted miser coming for Main Street businesses and your holiday savings, so brace for a thinner wallet and fewer gifts this holiday season if she gets her way.” 

For over a year, the Competitiveness Coalition has been sounding the alarm on the FTC’s egregious overreach and concerning actions.
