Solving the AT&T T-Mobile Deal

The Justice Department has sued to stop the merger of AT&T and T-Mobile, but chances are it will still happen since AT&T will ultimately payoff Congress and the whoever else they need to in order to get it passed.  Welcome to America.

Anyway, here’s a novel idea, hold AT&T accountable to their promises.

What’s going to happen in the end is, is that AT&T will have to make some “concessions”, but besides that, what about all the “good” things this merger is supposed to bring, like all those new jobs?  Well, hold them accountable.  Ok the merger, but then stipulate that they have 1 year or perhaps 2 years for all these promises of theirs to come to fruition and if they don’t, then you will be fined $1 billion dollars per year until you either rectify the situation or break up the company.

Stop stuffing money in your pocket, secretly giving the OK to crap like this, and facing the America public and saying “I’m working for you!”.  Try doing the right thing once, and oh, sometimes simple is the best way to solve a problem.
