  •  As a City Carrier of 17 plus years... (9+ / 0-)

    ..I've watched it all happen, drip by poisonous drip.

    Darryl Issa HATES the Post Office. I know why; it works when allowed to, and is highly unionized. The USPS doesn't take ANY tax or goverment money. We generate all of our own revenue. With the constraints Congress has placed on the Service, it will fail inside of 15 years. Congress is heavily lobbied by Fed-Ex (One of Issa's big contributors) and UPS and ALL the other "carriers" who want to break the monopoly the USPS holds on first class mail and the inside of the mailbox. Congress is what is "wrong" with the Post Office.

    That and Darryl Issa is just a mean, crooked prick.

    •  A government program that "just works" (0+ / 0-)

      and doesn't cost the taxpayers a dime.

      No wonder Republicans hate it.

      Reaganomics noun pl: belief that government is bad, that it can increase revenue by decreasing revenue, and unregulated capitalism can provide unlimited goods for unlimited people on a planet with finite resources.
