That is libelous statement for a Senator to make, especially one with the wealth and heritage of J Rockefeller.

His family wealth was infamous for "creative management" - eventually Standard Oil was declared a monopoly and broken up, but they "skirted" the laws by creating the "Standard Oil Trust" which was subject to completely different laws than a corporation. To me, that is a "loophole."

Ironically, one of Rockefeller's first partners in Standard Oil was Henry Flagler (the father of Miami).

My gut says J Rockefeller's motivation is more about breaking up Micky Arison than it is about the American people."

I don't see many American people complaining about the price of cruises. But the price of gasoline? That's a different story.
