    do you mean just in the US? Or anywhere? The are SO many. More in the past than today. Europe just stopped Apple from using proprietary chargers.

    In the US, any merger denial or monopoly breakup.

    Union protections

    FMLA

    Any FDA chemicals restrictions

    Clean Waters Act or any number of land use regulations

    Basically anything an attorney general does

    Book price fixing recently dismantled

    Rent control

      Bread crumbs to appease the plebeians to prevent a revolution. Zoom out. The government is there to protect corporate interests

        Toxic cynicism isn’t super healthy. Research some members of Congress to find the ones who are in it for the good of people. My senators from Oregon seem to really want to help. I’m a huge AOC fan

        But I get it. Especially in election years, and especially in US since citizens United we see little prizes that maybe could have come sooner

        Anytime FDA protects beef or milk interests, sure.

        Some Supreme Court members are in it for the cash.

        There’s tons of corruption, but the examples above were legitimate.

        It’s also really hard to tell what your own members would do if they had full control of their chamber
