Under current law, Congress has prevented the U.S. Postal Service from making many tough but necessary business decisions on topics ranging from the number of post offices to the frequency of mail delivery. Congress now must stop micromanaging the Postal Service and allow critically important reforms to modernize the Postal Service and to streamline its operations. We don’t need to bail them out; we need to let this invaluable U.S. institution act like a real company and save itself.

For 2012:
Post office -$15.9 billion loss
FedEx -$3.1 billion gain
UPS -$5.8 billion gain
Government fails every time it is tried. When you trust the government, you pick up the losses. When you trust a private company, investors reap the rewards. When a private company fails, creditors pick up the bill. When the government succeeds, well, it hasn't happened yet...
poor killa, here's your sign:
Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness involving psychosis. Psychosis is the inability to tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of delusional disorder is the presence of delusions -- unshakable beliefs in something untrue. People with delusional disorder experience non-bizarre delusions, which involve situations that could occur in real life, such as being followed, poisoned, deceived, conspired against, or loved from a distance. These delusions usually involve the misinterpretation of perceptions or experiences. In reality, however, the situations are either not true at all or highly exaggerated.

So you agree government is screwing up yet again. Sounds like you are making the argument for me to privatize so we don't have to fix things every time a politician has a good idea.

If Pawlenty's staff had looked closely at the consequences of privatizing the Post Office for people in rural areas, he probably would have never opened his mouth on this subject.

It isn't a service to exploit for the gain of a few rich people. Rather, such service is part of the nation's infrastructure, similar to roads or the electric grid. It is a public structure that makes a lot of other things possible and it is well worth keeping it out of the hands of the vulture capitalists.

You live in fantasy land. Would of, should of, could of... Didn't!

They will never do the right thing because there is no profit motive. FedEx and UPS already deliver practically everywhere. Just imagine if they had first class mail. Rural delivery would be no issue.

FYI: FedEx contracts with the USPS to complete deliveries of most of its packages....they deliver to the local post office and the carrier takes it to the patron.

$10 a letter? What makes you think the free market would cost 2000%+ more? That would be $750 billion in revenues alone. That could make FedEx and UPS many times more valuable than Apple. You sure you don't want to reign in your hyperbole a bit?

Rural and small town America would take the biggest hit if the Post Office were privatized -- with urban areas barely hurting at all. In other words, this is one more idea for downsizing government that would negatively affect middle and lower income Americans, since that's who lives in rural places.

If you want to see what happens when the market dictates the services available to rural and small town America, look at bus and air service. It's extremely hard to get to many rural towns by anything other than private automobile because it's not profitable enough to run transportation to these places. If Greyhound or U.S. Airways did have to go these places, ticket prices would be astronomical.

For $750 billion, we could deliver to every house in the world. That's just a silly assertion.

Those other methods aren't profitable because the people don't want it. Why do you insist on shoving your bad ideas on others?
