$1 per week...........

....I bet my grandmother, a coal miner's widow who died in 1977 at age 83 would have found a way to chip in $1.00 a week to fund the postal service. And that is what it would cost per household and business to cover the USPS's $8 Billion annual deficit.

But let's be honest, people have changed a lot since 1977 and nowadays many Americans would bitch and moan about paying $1 per week for daily postal service. If I were Emperor, I would ask every household and business to pay a tax of $1 per week to continue the current level of postal service.
