The postal service has tired multiple ideas to run more efficiently, but congress has to approve any plan they come up with and congress has no accountability for USPA failures. So, naturally Congress politicizes every cost saving measure saying "The USPS and the GOP is trying to kill old people and "they won't get their medications", "Welfare checks will be late", etc.

As a result, The USPS cannot do ANYTHING to balance their budget because the pandering socialists in Congress use every opportunity to run that program more efficiently as a chance to "Save the people from Govt cutbacks"

It's pathetic. Make the USPS 100% private and get the govt OUT of mail delivery completely.

well when PO is gone and it will be, well it has to be removed from the Constitution. Then the government will have to get all the billions they take from the PO.

hmmm wonder were they will take it?

I do my part to keep the Post Office running by refusing to go "paperless" with all my bills, financial statements, etc. To me, it's still very cheap to get a piece of paper delivered anywhere in the Us for just 44cents.

If they dropped Tuesday and Thursday deliveries it would help costs a ton.
I like Fedex myself, I use Fedex for everything shipping.
Fast and reliable.

Im betting if they went private, they could provide better service at lower cost.

Get government out of the loop and pretty much EVERYTHING works better.

1. it will not be cheaper if it goes private( and the post office is almost private now.

2. you will be traveling a lot futher then a cluster box.

3. you will end up going to UPS to pick up the packages they dont deliver that usps delivers for them. FedX the same thing.

4. First class mailing will go above a dollar

5. Small Post office (branches will close)

6. there is no outfit out there that handles the volume of over all mail like the USPS does period.

7. your privacy as far as mail goes will be gone.

8. it will no longer be binding in court. yes paper sent and cancelled by us is legal and binding.

9. The Post office real Name is The Department Of the Post Office in the original Constitution. PMG Comes under appointment by the president.

I could go on and on Rant over, but what irrates me the worst is misinformed people that do not work for the post office.

Last night alone EA GMF"s moved over 6 million pieces of mail. First class. This does not include packages, magazines express mail, priority mail, ups packages or fedx packages that they dont want to deliver. Good luck getting ups and fedx to do what we do.

StalkHunter do any cities have mail carriers on Bicycle routes or Segways Seems like in some areas it would save gas. Does the P.O. use any electric or solar powered vehicles ??
I often wonder how much they lose with Bulk rate Junk mail delivery. I would be willing to guess at least 1/2 my mail is Crap that never get looks at . Like Omaha Steaks seems like I get their Junk several times a week and it goes straight to the trash unopened.

If it went private you might still pay a reasonable price around large cities, but the rural areas will be SOL. It would cost unreasonable amounts to try to get a letter somewhere.

I definitely don't want to see paper mail go by the wayside. I'm not too trusting of E anything these days. Heck, I even still pay, with the exception of one, my bills the old fashioned way.
