I think we have had enough with the taxes and the bailouts. Our government is rewarding and consuming institutions that have made bad decisions, some extremely bad. Times are changing and so must the newsprint industry. I read my newspaper online now - saves trees. Let our system of free market take care of these issues. This would be laughable if it were not serious. I actually thought it was a satire when I first heard of it. The government has no right to issue these kinds of taxes which in the end can/will be used to actually stifle free speech.
