    Step one :Tues, Thurs, Sat. Delivery, local pick up. Charge $ for express delivery of any other day.
    Step two : end the monopoly on private mailboxes. Keep the over sight, charge for over site.
    There, the same thing I have been saying for the last 3 years! And this would not be a problem. But it still can be fixed.

    Let us not forget the E readers and smart phones.

    No more junk mail rates. Advertisers pay full rate.

    Excuse me, have to got get my meds that just came out of my mailbox. Try pulling prescriptions through the CD slot on your computer.

    p.s. just three prescriptions came today from VA. Gee, one of those much cheaper government run “health care programs” that costs far less than “privates” provide!!

    “congress’ interference” on requiring a GOVERNMENT PENSION FUND to be funded????
    IMO, the postal unions and the above average “gov.payscale” and the featherbed pensions are what bankrupts the USPS.
    -
    and states contracted that disease from the feds…with union police, firefighters, teachers, government employees….fat, fat pensions and double-dipped retire at 20 years and work awhile in job # 2 and retire “rich”….(see Illinois pension scandals)
    -
    I prefer my meds from local pharmacy….used to order by mail but best would be FedEx like I order my printer ink cartridges, HP next day shipping free….

    The reason the PO is in debt is because the Republicans demanded the retirement system be paid ten years in advance. Remember to never vote Republican Ed.

    If CONgress succeeds in bankrupting the Post Office you might have to pay $8 to mail a letter.

    @dtroutma Amazing, got my meds from VA today too and have nothing but raves for the VA Health Care System and a public supported and paid for mail system. But then I’m for the good of the common man…and definitely out of step with today’s “Far Right and Corporatism”.

    And that would be local only. Out of town or out of state would be closer to $20.

    @cjr53

    Here is the problem with your argument. What does it cost RIGHT NOW! if you say 20$ then it must cost 20$$$ RIGHT NOW. The only difference is that the post office can not change fast enough because of bloated bureaucratic and old fuddy duddies who can not see the change coming one way or another. I saw this coming 8 years ago and started calling for less home delivery. The writing was on the wall when aol was around.
    Tell me this what is the fuel cost for one day of home delivery?

    Do you all know what you call a conservative who actually has facts and knows what he’s talking about? A liberal.

    how about the usps do limited banking like in other countries? savings accounts, money orders, travelers checks, and etc…it probably would be better than bofa. and, wouldn’t get in trouble with sub prime loans like bofa.
