Protect the U.S. Post Office


The Republican Party is a puzzlement to me. Another reason I think they are out of the “loop.”

The Republicans drive to kill the U.S. Postal Service. Our post office is wonderfully efficient and trustworthy. Forcing it to pre-fund 75 years worth of pension benefits has only one purpose: to bankrupt the service.

Some services are best done by the government. The Postal Service is one of them.

Privatization results have seen shoddy service provided by political cronies. I hope Congress will save the Postal Service, including Saturday delivery.

Try telling GM for instance, that they have to prepay 75 years worth of pension benefits.

I don’t want my mailbox to have that empty feeling,
