Broadband Public Option

Are people arguing for a "single payer" system in this country for Boadband.

Seems like a trend.

No. Broadband provision involves huge fixed costs and very small variable costs. Providing service once the fiber has been laid is comparatively very cheap. Providing health care once a hospital has been built still involves considerable expense (caregiver salaries, consumables, insurance, etc.)

Soon America will be so weighted down in debt. The tax for a big mac will be 400%.

ISPs face similar expenses after the infrastructure is in place. Granted, it might not be as disproportionate as your hospital example, but it still exists nevertheless.
