It included my bipartisan bill to make sure veterans exposed to toxic substances like burn pits receive the medical care and benefits they deserve. That’s a huge step forward. Amy Klobuchar 1 week ago:   Tuesday Jun 21 - 9:57am Monopolies and duopolies are causing shortages. Multinational shipping conglomerates and Big Tech companies are making it harder for small businesses to compete. It's simple: our antitrust laws need an overhaul.

Thank you to Sen. Thune, Reps. Garamendi and Johnson for their work on this. Businesses deserve to get their goods to market without being forced to pay exorbitant prices. Amy Klobuchar 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jun 16 - 12:26pm Every single year, the price of two of the blood-thinning medications that millions of Americans need to prevent strokes have risen. Now they're so expensive many people can no longer afford them. Just one example of why it is so critical we act to lower drug prices. Amy Klobuchar 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jun 16 - 10:45am Foreign-owned shipping companies' profits have skyrocketed off the backs of American businesses being forced to pay exorbitantly to ship goods, leading to higher prices for consumers.

Reforming our antitrust laws. Why? Because our economy should actually work for Americans, not just mega-corporations and monopolies. Amy Klobuchar 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jun 15 - 9:59am Something that Big Pharma was able to lobby into law: a ban on Medicare negotiating lower drug prices. Removing that would directly benefit tens of millions of seniors and save taxpayer money. It's time to stop listening to lobbyists and lift the ban.
