This time, Sanders claims Broadband internet is no longer a “luxury.”
Broadband access is a necessity, not a luxury. Period.https://t.co/QbDyBsNPz0

Many people on Twitter are calling out the ludicrous claim, here are a few:
Is there anything that isn't a necessity? Is there anything people should have to work for as opposed to being given it by the gov't?

Since when did broadband become a right? What's next? Proposal for gov't to cover all utilities? Broadband is not a right! #communismSux

I agree 100%. It is one of those things on a loooong list of stuff I want and want other people to pay for. Range Rovers, G5s, boats, etc.
