DENVER – During a radio interview on the Denver-based Ross Kaminsky Show, Competitiveness Coalition Chair Scott Brown raised the alarm on Rep. Ken Buck’s (R-CO) misguided antitrust agenda.
Brown alerted Coloradans how Buck’s policy agenda is “marrying up with” radical liberals like Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). If enacted, Brown argued Buck’s policies would allow “unfettered access to the federal government to overregulate entities and basically give an upper hand for the CCP to become the number one tech leader in the world.”
He further warned that should Congress take up Buck’s failing antitrust agenda, it would “allow carte blanche for the FTC, DOJ and unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats” like FTC Chair Lina Khan and DOJ Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Kanter to crush innovation while ceding our position as the global leading force in the tech sector to China.
This week, Buck faced a serious blow to his “antitrust caucus” with the announcement that half of the group – Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) – would be retiring from Congress. The Competitiveness Coalition’s statement on the development was featured in Politico Morning Tech.
Recently, Brown and Buck went head-to-head in dueling op-eds in Daily Caller over the merits of Buck’s big-government, pro-China approach to the tech industry.
The Competitiveness Coalition is a first-of-its-kind group educating the public and advocating for policies that put consumers first while fostering innovation and attracting new investment.
