A consumer group is asking the federal government to consider breaking up Google.

Consumer Watchdog wants the Department of Justice to break up the Mountain View-based company because of uncompetitive practices. They say Google is a $23 billion company that holds a majority of the search market.

The group also claims the Silicon Valley giant lobbies Washington and looks for laws to protect its profits.

Google had no comment.
