here is a suggestion for solving the money problems for social security and medicare. we all know that the postal service charges for mail and post cards and the telephone companies chage for calls so why are e-mails free? i propose a 1/1000 of a cent .001 = 1000 for a penny government fee on all sent e-mails to be used soley for medicare and social security. the carriers would collect the money from bill paymentsand send the money to restricted accounts only for social security and medicare. amounts less than one dollar would not be billed until the amount exceeded one dollar. consiering the fact that more than 250billion e-mails are sent daily this could be a very big amount and would have very little effect on average users. also the law authorizing this would not be able to be increased for 10 years.as anextra bonus some of the spammers would think twice about sending out their junk.
