I have always believed we need more bipartisanship in Washington, but just because an idea is bipartisan doesn’t make it good. A bill now making its way to the Senate floor is a perfect example.

Few bills in recent memory have been as misleadingly titled as the “American Innovation and Choice Online Act.” It takes a swing at big tech companies but would hit American consumers and workers on the nose, knocking both backward.
