Did you have this on your bingo card? Senator Warren and Senator Graham have teamed up
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
Both Elon Musk on Twitter X and Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook are giving rogue actors (such as Donald Trump and others) a platform for spreading misinformation, hate, and bigotry- and all without protecting consumer privacy.
We must regulate big tech to protect consumers from AI audio and video ads that mislead voters and we must protect consumers from monopolies.
Senator Warren and Senator Graham have introduced the Digital Consumer Protection Commission Actwhich would set up an agency to regulate the licenses granted to big tech companies like Meta, Google, Amazon and Apple. This will not impede on Freedom of Speech and it will protect consumers using Big Tech.
“Enough is enough. It’s time to rein in Big Tech. And we can’t do it with a law that only nibbles around the edges of the problem,” the senators wrote in a joint op-ed published in The New York Times.

I believe in the power of the people. I have seen the love and determination of folks stepping up to write letters and postcards to voters, signing petitions and letter campaigns, making calls, sending texts, hitting doors, and dropping literature. There is no power like that of the people, and People Power United stands ready to protect our communities against any and all injustices. - Laurie Woodward Garcia, People Power United
