PRINCETON, NJ -- President Obama's job approval rating is at a new low, averaging 40% in July 26-28 Gallup Daily tracking. His prior low rating of 41% occurred several times, the last of which was in April.

US Postal Service warns it could default

The US Postal Service warned on Friday that it could default on payments it owes the federal government, just days after the US government itself narrowly averted a default.

The government's mail service said it lost $3.1 billion in the period from April to June, blaming "the anemic state of the economy" and the growing popularity of electronic communications over old-fashioned letters.

As a result of its mounting losses, the US Postal Service said it would not be able to make a legally required $5.5 billion payment in September to a health-benefits trust fund.

"Absent substantial legislative change, the Postal Service will be forced to default on payments to the federal government," it said in a statement.

Dating back to 1775, the US Postal Service was once a crucial branch of the federal government, but in recent years it has come under increasing fire from critics who consider it bureaucratic and inefficient.

In July, it unveiled plans to identify nearly 3,700 under-used post offices around the United States for possible closure. The Post Office has been hemorrhaging billions of dollars in recent years.

More Government Failure. Yes, the USPS is essentially government that HAD a direct line into the US Treasury for borrowing. Now that line of borrowing has ended and exposed the pig!

Friday in a move that could send shock waves through global. The following is a press release from Standard & Poor’s:

– We have lowered our long-term sovereign credit rating on the United States of America to ‘AA+’ from ‘AAA’ and affirmed the ‘A-1+’ short-term rating.

– We have also removed both the short- and long-term ratings from CreditWatch negative.

– The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government’s medium-term debt dynamics.

– More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011.

– Since then, we have changed our view of the difficulties in bridging the gulf between the political parties over fiscal policy, which makes us pessimistic about the capacity of Congress and the Administration to be able to leverage their agreement this week into a broader fiscal consolidation plan that stabilizes the government’s debt dynamics any time soon.

– The outlook on the long-term rating is negative. We could lower the long-term rating to ‘AA’ within the next two years if we see that less reduction in spending than agreed to, higher interest rates, or new fiscal pressures during the period result in a higher general government debt trajectory than we currently assume in our base case.

But, but, butt..... the GOP got 98% of what they wanted in manufacturing the debt ceiling crisis, plus a double dip recession prospect for the 2012 Elections...... and a 10% slide in the Market..... and, also hope for future lay offs....... what's da matter now!

Actually, Obama has been very consistent on taxes. The stimulus package cut taxes for the vast majority of Americans. The only tax increases I've ever heard him advocate are for the wealthy.
The stimulus cut taxes? That is absurd. The 980 billion was borrowed money which has to be repaid. And how is it repaid? With more taxes!

So, then it seems you think a business grossing $250K a year, with five employees falls into the wealthy category?
Before costs, that equates to $50K a year were the proceeds distributed equally, which they wouldn't be considering owner / employee relationship. Deduct costs and you are down around $20K.
39% tax on a $250K gross income is nothing short of insane.

Plenty of small businesses prospored before the Bush tax cuts (although I doubt any business grossing $250K could afford 5 full-time employees regardless of the tax rate).

Yes, in addition to spending measures like infrastructure projects, the stimulus package cut taxes for 95% of Americans.

There isn't a problem with true Americans appreciating their veterans.

The problem is we have a posturing political HACK for a president who will leverage every phrase he utters for political advantage.

I'll ask the obvious question that nobody is asking: the brave SEALs that were instrumental in killing OBL were killed this week. HOW DID THE PEOPLE THAT KILLED THEM KNOW PRECISELY WHICH HELICOPTER TO SHOOT DOWN?

I want everybody to think about how Lord Obama probably ordered the commanders in theater to suck up to Pakistan and report every planned mission to the corrupt, evil Pakistan military as part of an effort to kiss up to them politically for taking an uncharacteristically decisive action.

LORD OBAMA MAY HAVE SET UP THE CREW THAT FINALLY KILLED OBL TO BE MURDERED.

Think about it.

You should really be ashamed of yourself for trying to use this as political fodder. These brave men died fighting for your right to even be on this forum. While the men on this helicopter were from Seal Team 6 they were not the same ones who killed Osama Bin Laden and if you were to read a paper or watch a news station other than Fox then maybe you would know that. You TEA people are really starting to sound WACKO.

Answer the damned question, dickweed.

HOW did a specific helicopter transporting men from SEAL 6 get identified? How did the diaperhead with the RPG know which chopper, out of all the ones flying out of that base, to shoot?

It's laughable whenever a bedwetting liberal like you tries to "out-patriot" a conservative. You dickless parasites only care about getting free stuff from the gubbermint.

You should be ashamed of yourself for using these servicemen's deaths to sipport your half-baked political agenda. Shame on you!
