Yesterday, Major League Baseball (MLB) announced they were moving the All-Star game out of Atlanta.
They didn’t like the election integrity laws passed in Georgia.
Biden supported this move.
Now, GOP lawmakers are threatening MLB’s antitrust exemption.
GOP Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-R) announced that he ordered his staff to introduce legislation to strip them of their antitrust exception.
Other GOP lawmakers have begun throwing their support behind it.
Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) took to Twitter to take a stand against the MLB.
He called for the federal government to stop granting special privileges to certain favored corporations.
Why does @MLB still have antitrust immunity? It’s time for the federal government to stop granting special privileges to specific, favored corporations—especially those that punish their political opponents. https://t.co/k3GIZuGYHB

GOP Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) followed up promising to work hard with Senator Lee to end MLB’s antitrust immunity.

Will the GOP stand up against the Left?
Or is this just more posturing?
