Read this if you want to get really pissed off. I love my post office but it really needs to be privatized.

If the PO made a profit, congress would just blow the money.

Who gets special breaks from the post office;

American taxpayers give an $18 billion gift to the post office every year

Quote:
The postal service authorizes nonprofits to use the nonprofit mailing rate for the following types of nonprofit organizations: those organized for a religious, educational, scientific, philanthropic, agricultural, labor, veteran, or fraternal purpose. Fraternal organizations are those that foster benefit among its members, such as the Elks or Masons.

The above also includes politicians and political parties.

Ebay must get one as well. We sold something on Ebay recently and they calculated postage and sent a mailing label prepaid. It was considerably less than I thought it should be.

Of course, if .gov were to change postage regulations for USPS, basically forbidding special deals with large volume shippers such as Amazon, then the people who will be paying any increase in shipping charges will be the customers.

As for Amazon, they ship via whatever shipper can give them the lowest price for the item shipped. If that shipper is USPS, then that's who gets to ship that package. If is is FedEx, then FedEx makes the buck on the package.  As far as I can tell, since Amazon does use multiple shippers, their choice depending on factors such as type of contents, weight, origin, and destination, it looks to me like free market in action.

The trouble with the "ANALysts" that write these kinds of articles is they almost invariably have some butt-hurt they're trying to offset.

Speaking of the Post Office what the Hell has happened to their motto of delivery in rain, snow, whatever?
A few weeks ago we got our mail at 10 PM, we rarely get mail delivery before 6PM. One day last week no delivery at all for most of my neighborhood, the next day our regular mailman showed up about 6:15 and told us the guy that delivered the day before got cold. Seems he did deliver some of the mail on his route, got cold and went back to the PO  for the rest of his shift. Weather was not THAT bad on the day in question. Double up the load for the carrier the next day. Is all of America like this ?

The USPS isn't really losing money because they can't be competitive with the private companies.  They are losing money because their employees retire on average 7-8 years sooner and their pensions are way...way...better.

Our entire government pension programs are unsustainable whether you are state or federal.

You are partially correct. They can retire I believe it's at 55 with 20 years (at least it was 55) in 2000. In about 1984 they changed the pension system to a "modified 401k" ( the actual name is Thrift Savings) with a VERY SMALL pension (about $500/month). Those employed prior to 1984 continued on the Civil Service Pension System.
