The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is having a meltdown. Congress should remedy the root cause before this seriously damages the U.S. economy.
The FTC is supposed to protect the public from deceptive or unfair business practices and from unfair competition.
But in a fiery resignation announcement on Valentine’s Day, FTC Commissioner Christine Wilson charged FTC Chair Lina Khan with “disregard for the rule of law and due process.” This includes “willful disregard” for congressional limits on the FTC’s power and defiance of legal precedents.
Congress should investigate these matters. And President Biden should promptly nominate two additional FTC commissioners to fill vacancies.
Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in an Op-Ed in The Hill here.
