    Only a U.S. Senator could have an idea that good.

    The Senator is a little late and a little short on thought to take credit for this idea...from back in 2002

    And it really is the worst idea ever and shows a complete misunderstanding of the Internet and email.

    I guess the next suggestion will be to start taxing instant messaging messages since those get spam as well? Maybe a penny a message? Hell lets tax phone calls per call. Maybe if you talk too loud in public, you will get taxed as well?
