I know we have laws about monopolies on the books - WHY DON'T WE ENFORCE THEM? NO MORE MERGERS. This is bad for consumers. When you get rid of competition, you get rid of competitive pricing, you get rid of quality; and consumers get higher prices and crappy products - and workers lose their jobs. If you approve, this merger is just like all the rest - wealthy people playing a game of Monopoly with people's lives and livelihoods. And the billionaires can't figure out why more and more regular people hate them, and why the word 'billionaire' has become a dirty word - THIS IS WHY! They ruin people's lives, and YOU LET THEM DO IT. NO MORE MERGERS!
