APP Launches Ad Campaign Urging Senate Vote on Big Tech Antitrust Bills
Today, American Principles Project (APP) announced the launch of a new ad campaign calling on Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to hold a vote on bipartisan antitrust legislation targeting Big Tech companies.
The ads will be airing on broadcast and digitally in the New York and Washington, D.C., markets. You can view the ad here.
APP Director of Policy and Government Affairs Jon Schweppe also released the following statement:
“Time is running out to get Big Tech antitrust reform done in this Congress. It ought to be a no-brainer. These bills have bipartisan support both among lawmakers and also voters. Nearly everyone, both in Washington and nationwide, recognizes that these Silicon Valley behemoths have abused their dominant market position — to cripple their competition as well as undermine free expression in the digital public square. They must be held accountable.
“Right now, Chuck Schumer is the only person standing in the way of getting a Senate vote on these important bills. He has a choice to make: either continue to protect the Big Tech special interests who have filled his campaign coffers or finally heed the will of the voters who elected him to office. We call on him to do the right thing and let the Senate vote.”
Last week, APP released polling from six Senate battleground states which found that 58 percent of voters support Congress passing antitrust legislation that would rein in the power of the largest Big Tech companies. Only 22 percent were opposed.
