Josh Hawley says voters are living in fear of big corporations trying to cancel them pic.twitter.com/gn2LlcBsaj— Acyn (@Acyn) April 13, 2021
It is great that Josh Hawley is at least talking like this.
Will this go anywhere in the current Congress? Will they go along with Josh Hawley on this? I seriously doubt it. It is much more likely that Republican senators will continue to prostrate themselves at the feet of corporations and the wealthy who are supporting the Democrats now. They’ve been doing it for so long now that they don’t know what else to do even though it is a massive electoral albatross.
“Details: Hawley’s “Trust-Busting for the Twenty-First Century Act” would …
Ban mergers and acquisitions by firms with a market cap over $100 billion …
What they’re saying: “This country and this government shouldn’t be run by a few mega-corporations,” Hawley told Axios. The Republican Party “has got to become the party of trust-busting once again. You know, that’s a part of our history.” …”
I haven’t ruled out the possibility though that Corporate America could tip the scales and destroy the old ideological consensus. It might happen sooner than I expected.
The Democrats are the party of Big Business, Silicon Valley and Wall Street now. They are the party of the woke professional class and plutocrats like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg. Andrew Ross Sorkin has said that Big Business is the best friend of the Democrats now because they are pushing “social equity” issues like “trans women” in women’s sports or pulling their business out of Georgia and saying it has become a Jim Eagle state because Georgia voted for Biden, Warnock and Ossoff.
Note: BTW, Teddy was only a pale echo of William Jennings Bryan.
