Why don’t they simply jack up the price of postage to $2 per letter. Then money would no longer be a problem.
It wouldn't matter how much they took in, they would STILL spend more than they have.
They could be driving Ferrari's to deliver the mail and still complain it wasn't enough. They are parasites, plain and simple.
As I understand it your postal service is only allowed to raise rates in line with inflation.
Unfortunately they are pinned to an artificial index that woefully underestimates actual inflation - this is one of the reasons why the USPS is going under.
But of course there is a deal of over-management, overgenerous pension provision and so forth as well.
