Tech Giants Questioned by Congress

Concerns of Antitrust Activity Raised by Congress Members 

On Wednesday, the CEO’s of the country’s top technology companies appeared before the House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subcommittee. Jeff Bezos – the head of Amazon, Mark Zuckerberg – the head of Facebook, Sundar Pichai – Google’s CEO, and Tim Cook – Apple’s CEO all answered questions regarding their monumental growth, and if their business practices undercut their competition. 

David Cicilline, the subcommittee’s chairman stated in his opening remarks that “as American families shift more of their work, shopping, and communication online, these giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses, meanwhile — mom and pop stores on Main Street — face an economic crisis unlike any in recent history.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would give the Congressional subcommittee wisdom on how to regulate tech companies. 
  • For God to lead Chairman Cicilline to guide the subcommittee effectively.
  • For American officials to guard moral business practices.
