A Proposal to Save the USPS

This post refers to brooksreview.net

Ben Brooks on a solution to saving the USPS:

This plan would mean I would be paying to not receive any mail — I’m so in.

I am not. I already find the mail system annoying. 95% of what I get is junk mail. I don’t want to pay to get no mail. First of all, I do get some useful mail and second of all getting junk isn’t that much of an inconvenience.

I want to know why they don’t charge these bulk/junk mailers more. If they double (or even tripled) the bulk rates these guys have to pay to send people endless advertisements and credit card applications. The USPS would win either way. Either their revenue increases or they have less mail to process as these companies shut down.
