The coronavirus crisis has left millions of small businesses struggling to stay afloat. We can’t let big business use this crisis to boost their profits while our economy and communities suffer. We’re calling for a moratorium on large mergers to stop corporations and private equity firms from gobbling up small businesses and consolidating their economic power even more.
Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 now to talk to your Representative and demand that the House pass a moratorium on big corporate mergers during the coronavirus crisis.
What to say when you connect:
Hi, Representative [YOUR REP.’S NAME].
My name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m your constituent. I’m calling today to ask you to support Senator Warren and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s plan for a temporary end to large corporate mergers in the Pandemic Anti-Monopoly Act.
I support a moratorium on risky mergers and acquisitions by big businesses to protect consumers and small business owners. We cannot allow companies to use this crisis to boost their profits and crush workers that are already struggling to make ends meet.
We should focus on helping small businesses to come back strong from the economic crisis and prevent large companies and predatory private equity firms from buying struggling small businesses. I’m calling on you to protect small businesses — which means making sure the pandemic doesn’t force them to sell out to big corporations.
Thanks for your time.
