I know that most of us complain about junk mail. There seems no end to it.

I kept a record of all the mail I have received for the past four weeks. I received 442 pieces, some from organizations and facilities unknown to me, and politicians. Only one or two pieces per week were first class.

I do not know how much organizations and facilities are charged. I know most politicians pay nothing.

If they charged politicians something and raised the postage of the other commercial entities a penny or two more, maybe the Post Office could get out of the red.
