Video: Postal “reform” proposals drawing consumer anger

SAN DIEGO – The Postal Reform Act hopes to revamp the financially-strapped U.S. Postal Service, which last year posted a $5 billion loss, but two proposals in particular are drawing negative attention.

One is a proposal to stop Saturday delivery and the other would be to stop home mail delivery altogether.

"Buried in the bill is a section that would create cluster mail boxes for all neighborhoods, and that’s just not a practical solution," said local Rep. Susan Davis.

Davis has introduced a resolution to block the cluster box idea and to block any attempt to for the post office to charge a fee for continued home delivery.

    The USPS Lost 5 billion last year because of the 2006 Postal Reform tax that requires the USPS to fund 5.7 billion dollars to congress for FUTURE employees that the USPS MIGHT hire in the next 75 years. These employees aren’t even born yet nor is the Postal Service hiring anyone other that Temps. The USPS is the only business EVER that has had this mandate.
    If congress would stop this 2006 Postal Reform act. The Post Office would have made a profit. Congress is killing the Postal Service !
