In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
I ma the owner of a small business. COMPETITION helps keep prices lower and FAIR. If I have to pay more for office supplies, I will have to pass the higher overhead to my customers, it slows the economy with less disposable cash on the streets. The United States is becoming a country of MONOPOLIES. The MONOPOLIES that were in place in the public interest have been broken down, utilities and others. THIS COUNTRY IS GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. Soon we will have the wealthy monarchs, and the poor, no middle class.
