USPS: Increase rates for junk mail

Here is the solution to the Postal Service’s deficit: charge more for junk mail. Everyone hates the stuff. Half or more of the mail we receive is junk, i.e., unwanted and destined for the recycle bin. We would love to receive less of it. Increasing its cost would reduce the amount we receive, balance the USPS books, and allow the retention of full six-day service. Problem solved!
