U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis testified in front of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, raising concerns of monopolistic practices by Delta Airlines and Kroger and asking Holder to investigate. Cohen said in the House Judiciary Committee hearing that after Delta merged with Northwest, and after Kroger took over former Schnucks stores, Memphians have been stuck with higher prices and fewer choices. Holder said, “That’s inappropriate under our anti-trust laws, so that’s the kind of thing that would have impact on consumers, and we would aggressively pursue.” WREG reports
