Senator Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) big tech-bashing American Innovation and Choice Online Act (AICOA) has garnered significant Republican support, even though it does nothing to address the free speech issues that have so justifiably enraged conservatives.
Enactment of AICOA would have the practical effect of taking free speech reform at Big Tech off the table in the next session of Congress, while giving Klobuchar and her allies, including those at the Federal Trade Commission, even greater leverage in manipulating Big Tech companies. For economic and political reasons, conservatives should withdraw support for the legislation.
Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in an Op-Ed in RealClearPolicy here.
