“Let’s be clear: we have a monopoly problem. But we can’t take on the biggest companies in the world with just Band-Aids and duct tape,” said Klobuchar on Twitter. “We need legislation that will increase enforcement resources and tighten our antitrust laws — so I’m introducing a new bill that will do just that.” What you won’t see in the bill is a call for Congress to break up any of the major players in the space. In that Klobuchar’s approach differs from some of her more progressive counterparts in the House and Senate, and that may help the bill garner bipartisan support. When Democrats on the House antitrust subcommittee published their findings last fall, most Republicans said they couldn’t agree with any of its recommendations, calling a potential breakup of Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google the “nuclear option.”
