    i work for the us postal service and i would like to make the public and congress aware of certain points, first the postal service is not funded by tax dollars it is supported by its own revenue, through serving the public with varieties of mail processing.
    as most know the postal service is in financial stress today mainly because of modern times, electronic mail, however congress can help the postal service by allowing them to stop investing money in the retirement system for a while, the postal service has over invested so much that it has put a financial strain as well, also congress needs to allow the postal service to stop sat. delivery across the us this will save mega bucks on fuel alone.
    also the post master general needs to put a halt on supervisors using postal revenue for lunches and dinners, you bring it or you buy it, no free lunch, also bonuses for supervisors needs to stop, someone makes 60k to 75k a year giving them bonuses for doing their job is ridiculous, and i may be conserative on some yearly salarys.
    also the ps needs a clause to limit workers to age 65, you have people working late 60s 70 up to 80 and believe it or not 90, give a young person a job or allow the ps to save, thank you.

    The postal service also has one of the highest funded pension systems in the USA.

    I found this interesting article, just came out 2 days ago: Postal Bailout in our future?
    FACTBOX-U.S. Post Office's troubled financial past | Reuters
    The USPS is a money black hole.

    Just kill it.

    Don't re-structure it. Don't bail it out.

    Just kill it.

    Dec 2006: President George W. Bush signs a law requiring the agency to set aside about $5 billion each year for future health benefits of its workers. U.S. post offices are barred from offering non postal services like selling greeting cards or prepaid

    How many other agencies, corporations are required to do this?
    Looks like Bush likely put the arrow thru the USPS's heart.
    Lots of donations from UPS and Fedex?

    You know it's in the Constitution, right?

    It'll take 2/3s of the states to "kill" the Post Office.

    I'm not sure what this means! Stop investing because you have got enough already? or, stop investing and let the taxpayer do it? And if you don't rely on the taxpayers why are you petitioning Congress? Exactly?
