  •  I disagree. I think USPS service is just as (2+ / 0-)

    good, if not better, than UPS and Fed Ex.  Of course, if you are looking for high end delivery service than UPS and FedEx may be the best for what you're doing.  That of course, is no reason to handicap a government system that is more efficient and cheaper for the vast majority of people.

    And the reason USPS is losing money has everything to do with being forced to fund a pension plan 75 years in advance, instead of the customary 13 to 15 years.  That is the only reason they are losing money.  Educate yourself.

    Basically what you are saying is: UPS and FedEx perform this one service that I need quicker than USPS, therefore, I don't care that USPS serves pretty much the entire nation cheaply, I personally don't need it.
