Regressives want to destroy the post office
See this article. If you believed the regressive narrative the post office (PO) is failing because it isn't doing a good job, that it runs a deficit and delivers poor service because it is a government bureaucracy. But as usual the regressives are lying because they want to privatize it and everything else, for that matter. You see, the regressives in Congress have manufactured a crisis where none exists. They saddled the PO with funding a retiree benefit program 75 years in advance. This is something that no other public or private organization has to do. So yes, with this restriction the PO runs in the red, but without this restriction that no other public or private organization has to do they would have had a surplus of $600 million in 2013 and $1.4 billion in 2014. The PO works and works well if left to the rules that every other organization has to run by. But that's the point: regressives want to see it fail so created rules to make it do so, rules by which any company would fail. See the article for more details on their insidious plan to privatize everything and fuck everyone else in the process.
