said by HotRodFoto:Oh and as for the pension funding issue who do you think is going to back stop all those pensions with a business model like the PO? Once the PO ceases in 10 yrs all those 40 year old postal "workers" will be looking for that sweet fat pension for another 40 years with cost of living and free healthcare (no contribution). Ahhh govt unions. Bless their little hearts. So yes I think Congress was smart to get the PO to beef up the contibutions given where the entire PO is headed
The problem is not the internet or unions, it's politicians who have their hands in the till of the USPS. The undisputed fact is that without Congresss prefunding requirement, the USPS would have zero debt, billions in spare cash, and a $15 billion line of credit. But when your goal is to shut down post offices, get rid of unions, and slash wages and benefits, you need a better story.
That is exactly what is happening.
