Is The Private Sector and Republican Leadership Trying to Destroy The US Postal Service?
The 2006 congressional mandate that the USPS pre-fund future retiree health benefits for the next 75 years, and do so within a decade, an obligation no other public agency or private firm faces. The roughly $5.5 billion annual payments since 2007 — $21 billion total — are the difference between a positive and negative ledger.
Sounds like the lobbyists for companies like Fed Ex and UPS are trying to push out the Post Office. How’s that Free Market thing working out for you guys?
Repubs are trying to privatize everything. The main reason is to destroy unions in this country. They hate Unions because Unions stick up for the working class and repubs hate the working class. We need a party strong enough to fight these thugs and their billionaire backers.
