INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Barbara Comstock.
On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with former Congresswoman Barbara Comstock on President’s Biden’s so-called “Antitrust” agenda and recent Executive Order. This conversation included:
- As the Chamber of Commerce said, President Biden’s executive order “smacks of a ‘government knows best’ approach to managing the economy.” That order was supposed to support competitiveness, but actually hurts consumers
- We are talking about 72 separate directives spread out across more than a dozen federal agencies.
- It touches nearly every job-creating industry you can think of aside from tech – Airlines, Banking, Hospitals, Pharma, Railroads, etc.
- The last thing our country needs right now is an executive order that makes sustained, healthy GDP growth more difficult.
- On tech specifically the President’s executive order is misguided. Today, consumers benefit greatly from fierce competition in the tech industry. That’s why we’ve seen lower prices, more choices, and higher quality across the spectrum.
According to a statement:
“Antitrust law protects American consumers from low-quality goods and services, but Google’s products are highly innovative and free for everyone. The Justice Department’s misguided lawsuit stretches antitrust law beyond its breaking point and risks breaking the very products that Americans love and use every day.”
Barbara represented Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District, was a senior appointee in the Justice Department and worked as a Congressional aide. Her election marked her as the first woman elected to that seat. She was named as one of the “Top Ten Most Effective Lawmakers” in the 115th Congress by the Center for Effective Lawmaking, a joint effort of the University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University.
According to a statement from Ms. Comstock, “During her time in Congress, Barbara was a leader on technology and cybersecurity issues, chairing the Science, Space, and Technology Committee’s Research and Technology subcommittee, as well as serving on the Joint Economic Committee, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and the House Administration Committee. Her legislative achievements include passing legislation to promote women and disadvantaged populations in STEM, as well as expanding research in the technology space. Barbara also was the leader on anti-sexual harassment legislation in Congress, and legislation to tackle the opioid crisis and gang crime. She partnered with Senator McCain to reauthorize multi-year firefighter grants to increase innovation and public safety. While in Congress, Barbara was the only woman in the Virginia congressional delegation and the only Virginia member to chair a subcommittee.”
