Congress should halt its legislative crusade against Big Tech before it kills modern convenience.
It’s surprising that at the same time American lawmakers are taking a stance to protect American innovation globally, they’re also pushing radical proposals that bring even more regulation and government overreach into our phones, our watches, and our laptops. Just this month, the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Antitrust proposed and marked up a flurry of bills that threaten consumer tech products as we know them. Because of this misguided policy, American tech products could become some of the most useless in the world. America’s lawmakers should focus on fostering competitive markets, not gutting our iPhones, reverting the internet to a series of hyperlink archives, and killing affordable brands we love.
