Sen. Elizabeth Warren says the nation needs "an economy that works for everyone, not just the big guys."

"The federal government has the tools to do it; Congress handed antitrust enforcers those tools over a century ago. But those tools have been sitting on the shelf for decades, gathering dust," the Massachusetts Republican said in an editorial published in The Guardian, based on an address she gave to the Open Markets Institute.

"Step One: block mergers that choke off competition … Step Two: it's time to crack down on anti-competitive conduct [and] Step Three: get all government agencies in the game ...

"The way I see it, the fight for stronger competition is similar to the fights over healthcare or tax reform or the other big issues that are at stake. At their core, these fights are about what kind of country we're building: one that works only for the wealthy and powerful, or one that works for all of us."

Warren also took a slap at President Donald Trump, who she charged with ignoring economic concerns he used to talk about.

"Donald Trump used to talk about the danger of monopoly. But that talk has pretty much disappeared now that he is president," she said.
