Blumenthal Statement on Charter Communications and Time Warner Cable Merger

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued the following statement on news that Charter Communications will be acquiring Time Warner Cable:

“While seemingly déjà vu, this merger proposal deserves close, constructive consideration-- and support if it serves consumer interests. My hope is that this corporate combination will give consumers more choice and lower prices, which they desperately need and deserve. I'm reviewing the details, and hope for early discussions with responsible officials on all the ramifications, including what the merger would mean for Connecticut.”
