There was a bit of business news developing over the weekend:
BREAKING: AT&T buying HBO, CNN owner Time Warner for $85.4 billion, uniting a telecom giant and an entertainment conglomerate.

Bernie Sanders said it’s a bad idea, echoing comments from GOP nominee Donald Trump:
The administration should kill the Time Warner/AT&T merger. This deal would mean higher prices and fewer choices for the American people. https://t.co/S8c4ldDqhi

Hmm, what else fits that description?
@SenSanders Kinda like Obamacare, right?

Pretty much, though it’s not as if Sanders would admit it.

You were fine with higher prices and fewer choices when it was time to vote on Obamacare. https://t.co/pMDs2VsNFR
