Congress Vetos USPS Savings Plan....



WTF... frick every single one of these people. The USPS continues to lose billions and citizens pay for it.

Only in Washington would a savings plan be denied



quote:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The financially beleaguered Postal Service suffered a setback in its plan to end Saturday delivery of first-class mail as Congress on Thursday passed legislation requiring six-day delivery.

The Postal Service, which lost $16 billion last year, had announced last month its plan to switch to five-day mail service to save $2 billion annually.

No law requires the Postal Service to deliver mail six days a week, but Congress has traditionally included a provision in legislation to fund the federal government each year that has prevented the Postal Service from reducing delivery service.
The House of Representatives on Thursday gave final approval to the legislation, known as a continuing resolution, that maintains the provision, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign into law. The Senate approved the measure on Wednesday.

They will never figure out ways to cut spending. They are addicted to it, and none of them have the balls to cut anything for fear of disenfranchising even the smallest of groups. We are frrrrriiiiiicccckkkkkeeeeddddd!!!!

And we think that in some grand way this government will reign in our deficits. We will be Greece and Spain times Cypus many times over before anything happens to end the entitlement addicts free hits.

Specifically to the USPS, it shouldn't deliver mail three days a week, much less six.

Reading things like this makes me worry less. There is literally nothing we can do to stop this train wreck. So, why worry? Find the best seat to watch.

"I view [posts] as a source of boundless patronage to the executive, jobbing to members of Congress and their friends, and a bottomless abyss of public money. You will begin by only appropriating the surplus of the post office revenues; but the other revenues will soon be called into their aid, and it will be a source of eternal scramble among the members, who can get the most money wasted in their State."

I love how people who speak like that today are labeled far right wing, tea party nut jobs.

It is amazing to me how smart Jefferson was. He literally called out the majority of the countries problems to come in the future..yet nobody listened
