Problems with the USPS are not new. Why has it taken this long for the laggards in Congress to attempt to do anything? Let the USPS try to fix their problems (that were partially caused by Congress), and streamline their operations. Maybe other government agencies can take a cue from them. The Federal government is too big to continue to be supported off the backs of the middle class.
The USPS lost $16 billion last year and expects to have a greater deficit this year. Cutting Saturday delivery saves only about $2 billion, but at least that is one government agency that is trying to save money. I agree that Saturday delivery is a waste and can be stopped -- if Congress will allow it.
Perhaps the Phoebe leadership can take a hint from some in the current administration and return 5% of their pay. Or better yet stop some of the overtime in some departments where others are sitting around doing nothing.
I'll bet this isn't going to be the last surprise from the Affordable Healthcare Act. Most of Congress had not read, much less understood, the bill before voting on it. Oh yeah, but their healthcare is not a part of the bill.
Think you have your "billions" and millions confused. Total worldwide foreign aid is $30 to $50 billion a year from the US.
Let's see, 3 years to get one of 80 to trial. How long will it take to get the other 79 to court?
There is much more fraud around (Medicaid, IRS, Peachcare, etc.) than just these 80 cases. Need some prosecutors dedicated to bringing these folks to justice.
It was no big deal.
The rich getting richer creates less for the rest of us? --absurd! I'm a blue collar, middle class worker and the only thing that kept me from getting richer is me. I don't blame it on someone else and I take responsibility for my life. My fear is that people thinking the way you do is going to take away from me what it has taken a lifetime to accumulate.
Wait 4 years. It will be more than 25%.
