The U.S. Postal Service is losing money, partly because of email. To add insult to injury, Supplemental Security Income checks and checks from other U.S. government departments are required to be direct deposit. That saves the government millions of dollars, but the public will have to give that to the postal service to keep it afloat.
I would rather get something for my tax money, not just pay them to stay open.
I would keep people working and spread the money more evenly. Departments in the federal government are interactive and each is watching its bottom dollar.
Why not subsidize the postal service by using it instead of email? Make the cost of regular mail part of the budget required for all federal departments.
