<letting a private company take over, would be worse service! >
Yeah, I'm not sure how it could be worse.
The only problem with privatizing the postal service is how are you going to bill the customers? By letter? By weight of total mail delivered? A flat monthly fee? Would you bill the sender and the recipient or just one of them? If the mail is sent by not accepted, do you still bill the sender? This isn’t like packages where 9 times out of 10 the receiver wants to get what it coming? What will junk mail or other mass mailers do? Would they get a volume discount? These are things a private company would have to work out.
Don't you think a private company is taking us further into the commerce identifier that knows what we eat, what we wear, what we believe etc...Look, let's go to the real source of the current problems most companies that work for that provide services for the public sector, like our gas& electrical, post office etc. Pensions. But is it the huge pensions that cause all of this or those who control those billion dollar pensions on Wall Street that used those funds to infuse money to the dirivtives schemes. Go to the source folks. Start blaming the reculprit not the pensioner.
This inculcate white wash doing well through redirecting the blame to others when the buck should and must stop to those who put us into todays mess.
<Because whoever takes it over is gonna hire people who work for peanuts who could give a c r a p at delivering the mail, for worse benefits, who in turn is gonna jack the price of service way up !>
Why would the price go up if costs are going down?

<sorry add, but its not us carriers who are to blame for the p.o. guys up above are clueless!!!!!!!>
That is my thought too, cubba. 20 billion in debt. A private company couldn't exsist with that kind of business practice.
<Let's take a look at the bigger issue- it's not just that the Post Office is outdated- 99% of mail in general is outdated.>
<so would you like if we had no benefits, would that make you happy?>
No. I pay for my family health and life insurance. I don't get paid vacations. I have no 401K. I take care of that all by myself.
