In 2011, the Post Office was denied a one cent increase in the price of stamps.

The very same day FedEx increased its prices and the next day UPS followed suit.

What is going on here?  Where is the outrage?  

Again and again I see the attacks on the USPS from Republicans and they are winning!

Where are the defenders of the constitution from Republicans?

I cannot understand any of this.  Why are Americans not protesting this?

I like my mail.  I use the post office.  I don't want to use FedEx or UPS.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
