The reason why the post office is having problems, they are not allowed to have a cash surplus. Any profit the post office makes has to be turned over to the federal government.
Like all other federal programs, the post office has been raided to fund other projects – military, welfare, food stamps, foreign aid,,,.
It’s not that the post office is broke, its federal governments out of control spending that is the problem.
Instead of making companies like google and exxon pay their fair share in taxes, the government gives tax breaks to corporations, taxes the middle class, then bankrupts programs like the post office.
Our roads are falling apart, the US is lagging behind on internet access, our standard of living is declining, social security and social security disability are going broke, and now the government is cutting out saturday delivery of the mail.
