I live in a rural area. My mail is delivered to my door including 100s of identical catalogs all of which are available on line for free. I have 4 post offices within a 10 minute drive. The problem would be easy to fix. Congress won't do it. Federal workers retirement was privatized 30 years ago so pensions won't be a problem in the near future. It merely demonstrates how difficult it is to reform anything any government does. At least the Post Office has a bottom line we can measure. Not so almost all others.
