The courts approved the T-Mobile and Spring merger. Now we are down to 3 major telecom companies. Does that favor the people? Isn’t more competition good? Anna Eshoo flip-flopped on this “Big Telecom Mergers; Extols Virtues of Sprint, T-Mobile Tie-Up.” Anna flipped her position on big telecommunications mergers, giving a glowing endorsement of a plan to merge T-Mobile and Sprint, the nation’s third- and fourth-largest wireless carriers — scroll down to see how.
Did you know that Anna has received $572,461 from the Telecom industry? The simple fact is, politicians who receive money from PACs and Special Interest Groups will pay heed to their request. Why? They are afraid of going against their donor groups, as these groups are usually “flush with money.” These groups can quickly turn against politicians who vote against their interest by pumping millions of dollars to defeat them.
We have many “bought and sold politicians” in today’s world. Who do YOU want to work for you?
- Did you know Congresswoman Eshoo is the #1 Big Pharma campaign recipient in United States Congress?
- Have you seen healthcare legislation that she has passed or not supported?
- Have you seen what voters are saying? https://rishikumar.com/voter_voice
Quotes from a recent San Jose Inside article “The Fly”
Quote#1 “But when the veteran lawmaker Rep. Anna Eshoo, had a chance recently to grill executives over the planned T-Mobile-Sprint merger, she positioned herself firmly in their corner by urging regulators to bless the hugely controversial $26.5 billion tie-up.
Quote#2 Eshoo argued that shrinking the market from four to three major wireless carriers would incentivize 5G rollout and somehow boost competition (a claim belied by a half-century of telecom history, but sure).
Quote #3 A few years before that, Barack Obama‘s DOJ sued to block AT&T’s proposed T-Mobile acquisition; Eshoo applauded the move, saying it reflected her views on the need for “true competition.”
Quote #4 It’s hard to imagine Eshoo buying her own rationalization. Maybe those $572,000 in career donations from Big Telecom made it easier to suspend scrutiny.
