The Democrats running for president believe that if they propose enough free things, it may actually help them secure their party’s nomination. And in the party where Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren currently have a significant amount of support, it may actually work.
On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren unveiled an $85 billion plan in which she wants to do away with private internet providers and put control of the internet in the government’s hands.
Her plan would create an “Office of Broadband Access.”
In announcing her plan, Warren wrote:
“I will make sure every home in America has a fiber broadband connection at a price families can afford. That means publicly-owned and operated networks — and no giant [internet service providers] running away with taxpayer dollars.”
