Gist: Eevil Congress forced the USPS to fund its unfunded liabilities. If only USPS could have followed the deficit spending model of the US Government, everything would be Okay.
Olympia Snow and her crowd came up with this idea that they could tap into the USPS for several billiion dollars every year to reduce the deficit ~ and that nobody would notice!
The $5.4 billion payment each year for 10 years is to fund health care insurance for postal retirees 75 years in the future. NO ONE DOES THAT ~ not or private companies, not for government agencies.
We got rid of Olympia the RINO ~ now to remove the disasters she left behind.
Nonsense -- even posted twice, it's nonsense.
The USPS wasn't "forced to fund its unfunded liabilities", it was forced to fund nonexistent, potential, future liabilities. I'm sorry to say it was a Republican Congress that ordered it.
No other government branch was required to do the same. Why was that?
