Don’t Break What Works Issues Statement on New FTC Lawsuit to Dismantle Amazon

Washington, D.C. (09/26/2023) – Today, the Don’t Break What Works campaign issued the following statement regarding the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)’s filing of a lawsuit designed to dismantle Amazon, one of America’s most trusted and successful companies, as well as a company that has created products and services Americans love. 

“FTC Chair Lina Khan has engaged in a long-standing and highly-public reputational smear campaign against one of America’s most popular companies, and this latest case is no different. From jeopardizing guaranteed two-day delivery to breaking a service that Americans love because it provides goods quickly and at a low cost, the FTC is attempting to bring harm to and raise prices for American consumers, which runs counter to the foundational principles on which the FTC is built. It’s important to keep in mind that Chair Khan’s faulty ideology has, many times over, failed to successfully hold up in a court of law when tested by the facts,” said Chandler Smith Costello, a spokeswoman for the Don’t Break What Works campaign

The Don’t Break What Works campaign has championed the products and services that benefit American consumers and pushed back on harmful policies designed to target a few American companies to the detriment of American consumers. 

The Don’t Break What Works campaign is powered by the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA). Learn more here.
