However, there is no private company that can do what the PO does. NONE. The PO does more in 2 weeks, that UPS, & FedEx do in a year. Who can handle every delivery, across the country, every day. They will never be able to meet those standards. They will have NO CHOICE but to reduce services. Maybe once a week delivery. You need your medicine, too bad you already had your delivery this week. You will have to wait till next week to get your viagra. Sorry.

WRONG: It is to cover future employee retirement health care cost, 75 years out. There is NO OTHER private or public company that has that mandate. Please try at least to have accurate information prior to posting Chester.

It actually will come from the people who use the PO, in increased postage.

It is for future health care cost. NOT pension cost. What other company, or agency has this around their necks? None. The PO is a cash cow for the congress. That money is going into the same lock box, that our Social Security is being held in.

Customer: Hey Mr. Postman, I didn't get my check yesterday. Letter Carrier: I'm sorry sir. I remember putting it in your mail box. Do you allow your Paper boy to put the newspaper in your mail box? Customer: As a matter of fact, I do. Letter Carrier: Maybe you should check with him. Because I am sure that I put it in there yesterday. Customer: OK, thanks, I will ask him. And all the other people that I allow to have access to my "mail box".

Consider too, the unemployment that would create, and the increased cost of all the other services that you now pay for through the PO. People have to make paper, print paper, make ink, bundle, ship, etc. What would take the place of the lost revenue? The increased cost in the other services.

So that is selfish. What about the people that get their medications through the mail? What about someone who get their check, or anything else in the mail that they might need in a timely fashion, like a passport?

Unfortunately Optimista. It was passed in 06 by a GOP congress. I think it was done purposefully to bring the PO to it's knees, and to open the doors to private enterprise. The problem is, it is constitutionally mandated. What happens of all of a sudden the private company goes belly up? Then what? It is too big for any company to come in and take off the next day. People get a lot of medications in the mail. One day might make a difference.

this has to be the most ignorant of post. What kind of service would you get, as far as your mail being delivered in a timely fashion to your home? There are already hundreds of cases now where private contractors (lower wage) have dumped the mail just because they didn't feel that they made enough money to do the job. They don't care about the job. To those who work in the PO, most care about the mail, and see it as the job security that they need for their families. Low wage means, less caring. "It is not my mail so why should I care".

but Occam, you had the choice. You chose to NOT take the 20% because you are financially secure. Others may not be able to sacrifice the 20% because they have a family, are strung out on debt, or enjoy the finer things in life. There are only 3 ways to make money. Work, invest, inherit.
