Competitiveness Coalition Blasts Senator Amy Klobuchar’s Revised S.2992
WASHINGTON – The Competitiveness Coalition today issued the following statement on the release of Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) revised version of the American Innovation and Choice Online Act, S.2992. The revised bill text arrives as Politico reports that vulnerable Senate Democrats remain concerned about the activist-backed bill behind closed doors and believe it could hurt senators’ reelection chances in swing states.
“Why worry about inflation in an election year when you can take away Amazon Prime and Google Docs? These swing state Democrats up for re-election are correct about one thing: the revised antitrust legislation will hurt their political prospects because it is terrible legislation that will exacerbate the economic challenges facing our country right now,” said Competitiveness Chair Scott Brown. “If passed, this legislation would expand government control into the private sector, hinder our innovators at home, stifle American competitiveness and help pave the way for Communist China’s global re-ordering. Any sound conservative Senator should steer clear from supporting such a negligent proposal.”
Counting 17 small business, consumer, and taxpayer advocate groups, the coalition is focused on preserving American competitiveness and defeating misguided bills such as the American Innovation and Choice Online Act and Open App Markets Act.

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.
