Berkeley, Calif., city council members think they've found the solution to the U.S. Postal Service's financial woes: Impose a new tax on emails.
"There should be something like a bit tax. I mean a bit tax could be a cent per-gigabit and they would still make, probably, billions of dollars a year," said Supervisor Gordon Wozniak, as city officials moved to stop the sale of a floundering Postal Office building in their community, CBS reports. "And there should be, also, a very tiny tax on email."
Not only would it help fund the postal facility, he said, to CBS.
