Senator: UPS should give Xmas refunds"Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Thursday urged the UPS to provide refunds to consumers whose packages and gifts did not arrive by Christmas.

“I am disappointed to learn that so many consumers in Connecticut and across the country made purchases this holiday season expecting their gifts to arrive in time for Christmas, but instead were left empty-handed,” Blumenthal said in a statement.

“I call on UPS to do the right thing and provide refunds to people whose Christmases were a little less cheery as a result of their late deliveries.”........

We have ways to get around UPS and FedEx...go shop at Brick n Mortar stores.

We have no way around ObamaCare...our only option is wasting their time pushing Illegal Alien Amnesty instead of ridding ObamaCare...talking bout you GOP

Some idiot here at FR posted the other day that he was glad the USPS is an alternative to UPS and FedEx.

The USPS loses billions of taxpayer dollars per quarter. For that amount of money UPS/FedEx could double the size of their fleets and double the workers they employ now!

Oh and don’t forget the USPS contracts out lower priority mail delivery to, you guessed it, the more efficient UPS and FedEx.

Is Blumenthal going to request that the power companies “compensate” those affected by the recent storms as well?

Blumenthal: “I call on UPS to do the right thing....”

Blumenthal? Stolen Valor Blumenthal? Calling on someone ELSE to “do the right thing?”

*snort*

The press is lumping FEDEX in with the UPS failure. UPS had a major failure at it’s hub in Louisville. Plane loads of packages that never made it out. There was no such failure for FEDEX. UPS has a smaller lift capacity vs. Fedex. They likely ran out of planes, or flight crew with hours left to work, or containers with which to load freight onto aircraft. The CNBC chatter on this subject today is inane.
