    The P.O. is the government working well, so they can't stand it.  It's as simple as that, imo.

    Like Amtrack, first they starve it, then they get everyone complaining about how poorly it works, being starved and all.  Then they cut services & raise prices so it withers and shrinks in usefulness and competitiveness.  Meanwhile the private (oligarchy-owned) competitors skim off the lucrative parts of the business (overnight delivery, packages) and force the P.O. to cut less profitable services (rural access & delivery), jobs and benefits, and now actual Saturday deliveries.

    And, pretty soon, "Look! It doesn't work!"
