Alas, broadband policy is on the table. From the transcript of John Kerry's speech today:
I will set out the details of this economic plan in the weeks ahead. I'll focus on raising American competitiveness:
-- Spurring the growth of new industries like the broadband technology that will dominate the future.
-- Lowering health care costs that put American businesses at a competitive and price disadvantage.
-- Making sure our children have the education and our workers have the training and skills they need.
-- And lowering energy costs which burden businesses and consumers and creating half a million new jobs in renewable fuels to make America energy independent of Mideast oil in ten years.
A reference to broadband before health care, no less?
