How soon? Are you kidding? We already pay more for Internet than any other industrialized country, and some second world countries:
Here's the truth that other countries have already figured out: when the government provides a service, it's cheaper. When private companies provide the same service, it's much more expensive, because they have to make a profit. And while it might have once been true that private industry could do a task better than the government, now private industry has realized that doing a poor job yields higher profit, so we end up getting worse services for more money when private industry provides them.
The federal government should provide all funds for education, for Internet access, and for healthcare. We can start paying for it by cutting the Department of Defense by 10% every couple of years, and eliminating corporate welfare. No more privatized intelligence, no more privatization of military services, no more military, intelligence, or security "contractors".
And eliminate DHS, what a fucking waste of money.
If that's not enough money, let's return to a top marginal rate of 91%. It worked great in the 50s, and the economy was booming.
