Senators Ask EC To Let Oracle-Sun Deal Go Through

The European Union has managed to do something that US Presidents often find difficult: to make 59 US Senators from both sides of the aisle agree on something.

A group led by John Kerry (D) and Orrin Hatch(R) has sent a letter to the European Union, asking it to wrap up the investigation of the Oracle-Sun merger (http://www.internetnews.com/government/article.php/3849916/US+Senators+Press+EU+to+End+OracleSun+Probe.htm) and let the deal go through. Interestingly, the letter emphasizes the damage the delay and uncertainty are doing to Sun."

The article paraphrases a Gartner analyst, who points out that the Senators' letter "comes from a US point of view and doesn't take into account how the EU operates.
