Good morning and blessings! I am writing you in reference to the proposed Staples merger. Such absorption and combining of companies violates the spirit of, if not the exact guidelines of the law. They allow for a large portion of any market to be controlled by a few. This would open the door to price discrimination,exclusive dealings and tying contracts. https://www.classlawgroup.com/antitrust/unlawful-practices/monopoly/ All in the pursuit of eliminating or limiting any competition and cornering the lions' share of any given market. I encourage you to do what is best for America and her people. No monopoly or monopoly like mergers. V/R Will Agee
