The load would be too much for the spam delivery guy...they gotta spread it out over 5 days or they would have to get bigger trucks.

Re: Post Office to End Saturday Delivery Starting August 1
The post office makes money, when congress mandated in 2006 that the post office had to pre-fund healthcare for every employee for 75 years in to the future, including putting money away for people yet unborn and that the post office only had 10 years to put 75 years of funding away at a cost of $5.5 billion a year, congress had a goal. Congress knows the post office makes money so they are trying to break them and federalize the post office so they can use the money and TAX you to run the post office.

the reality of the mandate also does not take in to account technology and assumes postal employee number will increase at an ever rising rate, the post office is fighting back and something like 5 out of 9 jobs are going to be cut so they can re-do the retirement numbers.

One more time, congress wants to take over the postal service & spend the money the postal service makes and Tax you at the same time to run the postal service and still make you buy stamps to mail things. Congress sees dollar signs and a huge money pool they can squander.

Tragic that people actually believe this crap. The prefunding is required, because without it the post office's unfunded liabilities would go through the roof and THERE WOULD BE NO USPS IN 20 YEARS. Its simple math.

Did you read the bill and watch the 2006 debates, they used that same argument, we are at 13 years by that clock now. But the truth is just by cutting this delivery day they most likely are in violation of the bill.


66 pages, quick read though.

Sec. 3691. Establishment of modern service standards

`(A) To enhance the value of postal services to both senders and recipients.
`(B) To preserve regular and effective access to postal services in all communities, including those in rural areas or where post offices are not self-sustaining.
`(C) To reasonably assure Postal Service customers delivery reliability, speed and frequency consistent with reasonable rates and best business practices.
`(D) To provide a system of objective external performance measurements for each market-dominant product as a basis for measurement of Postal Service performance.
`(2) IMPLEMENTATION OF PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENTS- With respect to paragraph (1)(D), with the approval of the Postal Regulatory Commission an internal measurement system may be implemented instead of an external measurement system.
`(c) FACTORS- In establishing or revising such standards, the Postal Service shall take into account--
`(1) the actual level of service that Postal Service customers receive under any service guidelines previously established by the Postal Service or service standards established under this section;
`(2) the degree of customer satisfaction with Postal Service performance in the acceptance, processing and delivery of mail;
`(3) the needs of Postal Service customers, including those with physical impairments;
`(4) mail volume and revenues projected for future years;
`(5) the projected growth in the number of addresses the Postal Service will be required to serve in future years;
`(6) the current and projected future cost of serving Postal Service customers;
`(7) the effect of changes in technology, demographics, and population distribution on the efficient and reliable operation of the postal delivery system; and
`(8) the policies of this title and such other factors as the Postal Service determines appropriate.
`(d) REVIEW- The regulations promulgated pursuant to this section (and any revisions thereto), and any violations thereof, shall be subject to review upon complaint under sections 3662 and 3663.'.
