    Maybe Barry can find work at the Post Office if he's found to be lacking sufficient skills to join Jimmy Carter at Habitat for Humanity?

    Barack Obama is both a lawyer and best selling author. That sorta beats out GW Bush, who ran Arbusto, a company start by Osama Bin Laden's brother, into the ground and got busted for DWI before becoming President.

    Congress moves closer to privatizing the Post Office - National economic policy | Examiner.com



    The excuse for the Issa bill is that the Postal Service has a huge operating deficit and can not make a $5.5 billion dollar payment to pre-fund its retirement accounts in November.






    The problem stems from a Republican law passed in 2006 that requires the Postal Service to pre-fund 75 years of retirement in a 10 year window. No governmental entity or private company is required to pre-fund future retirements that far out.



    The original reason for the pre-funding was for the federal government to get its hands on postal service money to hide the actual deficits Republicans were running in the civil service accounts.
