Don’t Break What Works Reacts to Today’s FTC Oversight Hearing

Washington, D.C. (07/13/23) – Today, the House Judiciary Committee held an oversight hearing where Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chair Lina Khan attempted to defend her agency’s actions, from her disregard for ethics recommendations to the FTC’s pattern of ineffective enforcement and litigation. 

“Today’s hearing lay bare some of the ways in which the Federal Trade Commission has prioritized ideology over the facts of the law or the best interests of American consumers,” said Chandler Smith Costello, spokeswoman for the Don’t Break What Works campaign. “Chair Khan’s leadership has led the agency down unprecedented paths and not in a good way. In her multiple, failed attempts to pursue an aggressive and extreme ‘antitrust’ agenda, she has shown she’s willing to jeopardize certain American companies’ ability to provide products and services that Americans love and even weaken the agency that she leads as a whole.”
