USPS lost $3.8 billion in last fiscal year
Republicans spent that much in a week in Iraq. No new record there. And what did we get? One of the most corrupt governments on earth who hates our guts.
The post office will never compete against "email". Connecting the dots on how that is the governments fault can only be accomplished by Republicans. They are good at "connecting the dots".
The Demopublicans can't be trusted with our healthcare.
The post office does a great job.
I have used them to pay my bills for 30 years, and they have never lost a single letter!
Obama pays that much in interest on his new record deficit!
comparing a porduct that has been on the decline for years with a product that will always grow is pretty stupid.
Have any of you checked out the Office of Management and Budget's figures (available on the WH website)?
$24.5 trillion debt by 2019. That figure does not include the current plans - healthcare, etc. That's 500% of our GDP.
We really need to stop looking at individual, partisan, politics and look at the big picture. We simply cannot afford it. Universal healthcare for everyone - great idea..... We don't have the money! We can't afford it. Cap and Trade - not a great idea but even if it was, we can't afford it! We don't have the money! The 'stimulus' package - even the fucking team in charge of it admits they can't audit it.
It's not about whether you're a liberal or a rightwinger.... it's about whether you think it's okay for the American government to take us from being the richest nation on the planet to a debt ridden, stuggling, junk nation where your children and their children will have no choice but to pay massive taxes to pay for our mistakes.
I agree with you completely. The USPS should not be providing our healthcare.
Just goes to show you that the fucking government can't do anything right.
Even with a monopoly on letter delivery they still can't break even.
apples to oranges...a dying system to a growing system....yall are just real sad with this ruse
