Chuck Schumer feels the heat during ‘Antitrust Summer’
Many of you will remember when I wrote about this the “Cartel Summer” campaign. by digital rights groups to try to rally support for two bills aimed at dominating big tech’s monopoly power.
Well, now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.) is feel the antitrust summer heat.
Schumer will decide whether the bills that American Innovation and Choice Online Act (AICO) and the Open App Markets Actis called to vote in the Senate.
With that in mind, Fight for the Future decided to quit two mobile poster trucks touring around Schumer’s Brooklyn, New York and Washington DC residencies this weekend and playing John Oliver’s youngest Last week tonight segment about the antitrust laws on repeat.
“We know that Chuck Schumer will understand once he looks at the John Oliver segment on antitrust why these bills are so important and put them to the vote,” said Evan Greer, the director of Fight for the Future, in a expression.
She continued, “But definitely him hasn’t looked at it yet, because he’s dragging his feet and giving Big Tech’s army of lobbyists more and more time to try and sink the bills. So let’s bring it to the big screen right where he can’t miss it.”
In the segment, Oliver noted that Schumer had yet to bring the bills to a vote, noting that his daughter is one Registered Amazon Lobbyist.
Earlier this summer, a coalition of advocacy groups (including Fight for the Future) and tech companies hosted an “Antitrust Day.” Drumming support for antitrust reformand more recently have their “Antitrust Summercampaign pushing people online to sign a petition telling members of Congress to support”Antitrust laws that create fair rules for road traffic and protect our fundamental rights.”
But for that, Schumer has to call a vote.
“The John Oliver segment does such a good job explaining the harms of big tech self-dealing and monopoly abuse as soon as Senator Schumer looks at it he will do the right thing, I’m sure of it,” Greer said. “And with strong bipartisan support these bills will pass overwhelmingly as soon as Chuck moves her to the ground.”
