In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The last thing we need is this country is even less competition among behemoth corporations. What we really need is to update antiquated anti-trust laws to destroy the current monopolies. All they do is move jobs and their income offshore, destroy small businesses and even entire towns and cities, and lower our even abysmal wages even further, while the 1% hoards all of the entitlements they receive from the taxpayers in the form of subsidies and redistribute wealth from the rest of us to them by paying lower taxes than most of their low-level employees. First we need to repeal the tax scam and return to the tax rates of the 1950s. Then we need to close all the current loopholes that allow the wealthiest Americans to pay almost no tax at all.
