    I’ve said from the beginning that Potter and Donahoe were bankrupting the USPS. It’s the same thing Don Sundquist did as Governor of Tennessee. He wanted a state income tax, and tried to get the state in as big of financial hole as possible to try and get it. Look back at all the totally stupid things the USPS spent their money on without the slightest bit of research to see if it were worth the money or not. Just spend as much money as humanely possible, and blame everything on the costs of the working employees.

    Funny how you balme the two PMG’s who fought the hardest against Congressional B.S. I’ll bet you vote Republican too.

    Why do you think they won’t rescind the prefunding requirement or decrease the amount???? It’s all part of the privatization process. Eventually mail delivery will be subcontracted out and done by illegal immigrants
