Donahoe “can say whatever he wants,” Tester said, “but I think he wants to privatize. And I think there’s plenty of people in Congress who agree with that. I don’t.”
A USPS spokesman responded:
Privatize? Nonsense. The Postal Service has no intention to seek privatization. What we are doing is continuing to adapt to the changing demands of our customers. By locating postal services inside established businesses, customers save time and in most cases have the convenience of longer hours than at regular Post Offices – seven days a week in many cases. The Postal Service ended its last fiscal year with a net loss of 5 billion dollars – the 7th consecutive year for net losses. This highlights the need for us to continue to seek new growth opportunities and reduce costs and the urgent need for Congress to pass comprehensive legislation to provide a long-term solution to our financial challenges.
