ICYMI: Scott Brown Discusses the FTC’s Suit Against Amazon with Josiah Bartlett Center’s Drew Cline

Brown: “People express more satisfaction with their online marketplace than they do with their own political party!”

WASHINGTON – During an interview on the New Hampshire-based WFEA Morning Update, Chair Scott Brown discussed the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chair Lina Khan’s misguided antitrust lawsuit against Amazon.

During the appearance, Brown highlighted that “91% of Amazon users are happy with the platform. Since when do we want the government to go in and basically level these companies based on their success or their size?”

The FTC’s lawsuit was joined by 17 state attorneys general, including New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella, an appointee of Republican Governor Chris Sununu. 

Brown also pointed out that, “when the government picks winners and losers and you have the FTC’s Lina Khan relentlessly crusading against our tech companies, guess what? It gives China… an advantage and it’s a wet blanket on all our young innovators. It’s mind boggling.”
