Just announced - US Post office to STOP Saturday delivery (same crappy service, taxes & fees to remain unchanged)
[link to abcnews.go.com]

Billions of dollars in the red, and facing a financial crisis, the US Postal Service says it plans to stop delivering mail on Saturdays, but continue delivering packages six days a week. In an announcement set for later today, the USPS is expected to say the cut, due to begin in August, would mean an annual cost saving of about $2 billion a year. One of the few bright spots for the Postal Service is package delivery, which has increased by 14 percent since 2010. The delivery of letters and other mail has declined with the increasing use of email and the internet. Last September the service reported a record $15.9 billion loss for its fiscal year. For the first time last year the post office was forced to default on payments owed to its future retiree health benefits fund.

And YES, the Post Office DOES receive Taxpayer funds!
Around $100 million is budgeted annually by Congress for the
"Postal Service Fund." These funds are used to compensate USPS
for postage-free mailing for all legally blind persons and for
mail-in election ballots sent from US citizens living overseas.
A portion of the funds also pays USPS for providing address
information to state and local child support enforcement agencies.

Not to mention the fact that the US Constitution requires the
Post Office ... meaning the US Taxpayer would still pay in case of
Default because of shoddy mismanagement and bloated retirement
and benefit packages for Postal employees.
