Not saying make a profit on it. I'm suggesting that the people using it should start paying for it. No different than the transit system, we all subsidize it, but the people that use it have to pay a fee. We live in an era that you don't actually need mail, so why continue to waste money on it?

Want to setup special provisions for seniors or disabilities then so be it, but as time goes on more and more people will be getting their mail electronically.

That and a lot of companies have already started phasing out mail by charging for physical copies, so I don't really see the issue with the government doing the same.
