Klobuchar targets Big Tech with biggest antitrust overhaul in 45 years | Ars Technica

Big Tech got big through acquisitions—and this bill aims to prevent that in the future.

“While the United States once had some of the most effective antitrust laws in the world, our economy today faces a massive competition problem,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) when she introduced the bill on Thursday. “We can no longer sweep this issue under the rug and hope our existing laws are adequate,” Klobuchar added, calling the bill “the first step to overhauling and modernizing our laws” to protect competition in the current era.
