The Association for Postal Commerce (Postcom) has joined postal unions in calling on the President to do something about the Congressionally mandated over-funding of pensions that threatens to bankrupt the US Postal Service:
Mr. President, we join our voice with those of our colleagues who deal with each day’s challenge of ensuring that our nation has the benefits that come from a universal mail system. Mail is, and will remain, for quite some time to come, an important part of the way this nation communicates and does business. The U.S. Postal Service is an Executive Branch agency. It is being imperiled needlessly by budget scoring mechanisms that don’t even comport with reality. It’s time to direct others within the Executive Branch to take sensible steps to rectify this matter.
