SenatorRand Paul defends competition – VIGOROUSLY!

33

While committee hearings and political debates can be boring to some, it’s never a dry day when Rand takes the floor, as he reminded us on Thursday when he went off against a package of antitrust bills the Senate was trying to push through last minute.

He blasted a package of bills the Senate was trying to push through last minute.

“The proponents of antitrust law are famously zealous in their desire to eradicate the curse of bigness,” Paul began (with a slight eye roll on the last phrase). “To them big is always bad, except of course when it comes to the size and scope of government,” he continued.

Paul continued, “The same people who supposedly fear the concentration of power in the marketplace, celebrate the concentration of power in the state. A state that inserts itself into and nullifies private contracts, breaks up companies it deems too large, and inflicts punishment on those that succeed in the competition for customers.”
