U.S. Chamber Objects to Judiciary Antitrust Bills Because They ‘Fail to Understand the Central Role the Consumer Plays in Our Antitrust Laws’

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The following statement can be attributed to the Neil Bradley, executive vice president and chief policy officer, U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

"What we have witnessed over the last two days is a failure to understand the central role the consumer plays in our antitrust laws. Further, efforts to politically target a handful of companies is a particularly bad look coming from the House Judiciary Committee, which should reflexively reject legislation that is arguably unconstitutional."

"Importantly, we also saw important Democrat voices emerge to join the overwhelming number of Republicans from the committee to object to the process and the substance of these bills making them a heavy lift to pass on the floor."
