It was said that businesses send 12 billion e mails a year while individuals send just over 5 billion. Can you believe there would even be consideration of this crazy concept. An analogy used on CNN was that it was like taxing automobiles to fund the buggy industry. There is currently a law that would make such a tax illegal. However that law expires next year. I'm sure this will have politicians salivating over what they could do with the additional funds. Currently It's said that it would go to the Post Office but that's just crazy. If the post office is going to die, then it should. Junk mail kills too many tree's already. Plus it could be replaced by the private sector if there is a real demand for the service.
