    The merger clearly violates U.S. anti-trust laws. The calculation of the horizontal monopoly (Herfindahl Index) puts this way into the red zone — obviously past the legal restrictions for monopolistic behavior. Here is what Blackboxvoting.org provided to the US Dept of Justice, with all the details. I expect to see this deal rolled back.

    The U.S. Senate has now scheduled investigative hearings into this.
