But Postal officials point out that other federal agencies aren't required to prefund for retirees this way.

In addtion, the Postal Service hit its debt limit last year, which means that it cannot borrow any more money from the U.S. Treasury.

The Postal Service plans to cut 150,000 workers through 2015, and recently proposed a price hike for stamps. But officials have said that the crisis won't go away until Congress makes the prefund requirement disappear.

Maybe the postal workers should start funding their own retirement plans.

I am you and you are me and we are they and so on and so on. Accusing a number of posters to be one in the same. It is merely a device, used by the troll mind (such as it is), to attempt to get someone to engage with he/she/it in order to attempt to further infuriate, shame, insult, degrade, etc. Apparently this provides short lived feelings of dominance, power, and probably, pleasure in the psyche of this creature that it cannot get anywhere else. This probably also accounts for all of the homoerotic references like ball sack, buggered, little bois, darker berries, etc.

With email costing nothing, will you spend $1 to send a letter across town? I would not. Like the dinosaurs, the Post Office is extinct.
I agree BUT there are those who continue to buy Hallmark cards and mail same.

AND have you priced a Hallmark card recently?

Again, a card can cost $5 and 45 cents to mail it. RAISE THE POSTAL RATES!!
