The founders were fine with creating the USPS and roads to get to them, not necessarily operating them.
Agreed. But since they were government operated from before the Constitution's passage, that hardly makes them extra-Constitutional.
Whatever form the U.S. Postal Service takes, private carriers can still be subcontracted as they are today. Pass a law contemplating shrinkage, so that new hires don't get defined benefit retirement pensions, and that would help the long term health of a smaller, though admittedly not leaner, USPS.

Hmm ~ no defined benefit pensions for the retirees from the only federal government agency to actually set aside funds FOR those defined benefit pensions?
Sounds like yet another trick to divert postage revenues from postal operations over to subsidizing the department of education, or some other leech ridden bedbug of a federal agency.
