"We pay our own way."

How can you pay your own way when you're losing $15.9 billion?

Sheesh...

The fact is they are still bloated with too many sorters and others who should be let go. Congress paid for magazine sorting machines and they sit unused while union labor still does it.

Waste.

Postage rate increase...

Tape a dollar bill to the envelope.

Want to send a package?

Tape your charge card to the box..

The USPS has outlived its present day usefulness. Trains replaced the pony express, airplanes replaced trains and today email and online bill pay are knocking out what remains. Not to leave out all the waste and union pensions. Within a 10 mile radius of my home there are about 5 post offices and two privately owned UPS stores. I do prefer private enterprise but what the post office needs to do is to consolidate their locations and handling facilities and maybe get into some modern day technology. 98% of all mail I receive through the USPS is junk mail.

Can we please at least stop the foot delivery of mail? How about individual or group streetside mailboxes?

Every time I see a mailman walking down the street sliding mail into slots and house boxes I think if only someone had a brain, they could break even....

USPS is being forced to fund their pension system up front with the real dollars it costs, not with the phony numbers the Federal government uses for its employees. That's Donohoe’s complaint. And between the many unions that represent postal workers & drivers and the idiots in Congress, USPS can't get unneeded facilities closed and Saturday delivery curtailed or stopped. It's a sign of the time when your (my) post office has a FedEx drop box outside the entrance. What a mess.

Donahoe says the post office needs to refinance retirement health fund payments to $1 billion a year instead of $5 billion

I would agree. When the time comes to pay for the retirement health services, 1/5th of the services should be paid for by the fund with the rest picked up by the retiree.

In return for lost Saturday service, they should fire one out of 6 employees and cap pensions.

They should get rid of half of all employees associated with the physical handling of mail (and their managers and manager’s managers...).

Then, switch everyone to every-other-day delivery - some neighborhoods Monday/Wednesday/Friday and others Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. The only exceptions would be those that get enough mail that it’s easier to deliver to them daily rather than every-other-day.

Cuts current operating expenses, and substantially cuts the number of future retirees who need to be pre-funded now.
