Technology, M&A and Antitrust


If there’s one area where Democrats and Republicans seem to find common ground, it is in their desire to curb the power of the largest technology companies, including Facebook, Amazon and Alphabet. The parties differ on the approach to regulating big corporations, with some Democrats proposing a moratorium on mergers and acquisitions, and Republicans calling for tech firms to become more accountable for information distributed on their platforms.
