UPDATE - I was conned or careless and I missed the fact that the proposed Ros-Issa law STILL sticks the USPS with accelerated pension and healthcare costs.
USPS needs to downsize some, but not to fund its future pension costs.
Amend the law to stop the prefunding or drop it altogether.
The US Postal Service was started by Ben Franklin. We have always had a good postal service.
But in 2006, the Reps passed a law requiring the USPO to fund future pensions. It applies only to the USPO because the Reps want to kill it.
We need to pass the Ross-Issa Postal Reform Act of 2011 so we can save some jobs and keep the Post Office.
If we don't pass the law, then the Reps may privatize the Post Office. That will mean less service, higher prices and the end of a pillar of the country.
Make the call Barry, encourage Congress to pass this law.
