The US Postal Service's forced financial crisis"In 2006 – Republicans in Congress passed a poison pill piece of legislation forcing the Post Office to pre-fund retiree health benefits 75 years out into the future – basically funding benefits for future employees who aren’t even born yet.  The Postal Service has to do this by giving the Treasury $5.5 billion every single year.  That’s a  Read More...

Hoorhah! No more bills on Saturday and one less thing to look for. It is all fine.

I think the post office is a great organization but thanks to the Republican government haters it is being destroyed.

Typical of the twitter generation- immediate reaction but no fore or after thought on the repercussions of a backed up delivery system. Sat. deliveries will become tues. or weds. and so on- and of course layoffs mean nothing to these ensconced and fearful pus*ies.

Why should we trust you Canadians? You inflicted Justin Beiber and Celine Dion on the US. You also claim to have a working public healthcare system and fewer gun deaths than the US even though you have nearly as many guns. I call shenanigans. (or whatever the French equivalent might be).

We're AMERICA dagnabbit! We have a right to our insane paranoia and made up facts! It's in the Constitution (someplace, I'm sure).

I ABSOLUTELY DO ***NOT*** AGREE. The Post Office was doing just fine until our bought and paid for politicians decided to dismantle it for privatization. Couldn't pass a bill to kill it so they break it with impossible demands. Who ever heard of a company being forced to cover pension plans for people who aren't even BORN YET???

It's a unions wet dream: No chance of the pension system being looted, like happens in so many other companies.
