  1. Because the USPS is losing tons of money on the Amazon deal and probably most others. When the previous PMG negotiated the special rates, expanded Sunday deliveries, and special designation for Amazon packages to be delivered before regular mail, they did so not in the best interest of the USPS, the US taxpayers, or the government, they did so only to keep union employees working. They saw the loss of regular mail to the internet as an affront to union benefits, and as long as people were still working, it did not matter how much money they lost, they could just keep increasing rates for regular mail users.

  2. NSA, I guess, means contracts and discounts negotiated with the likes of Amazon and Poshmark.

  3. It doesn’t matter how much the USPS borrows or steals. In six months they will be asking for more. The retirement bennies for the upper ivory tower bunch costs money. They rest of the peons get nothing but the bill. Enjoy paying for it.

  4. Oh no! Dear members of Congress! Don’t jeopardize the delivery of all of your political junk in my mail box everyday!

    Self-serving bas***ds.

    It should never be disclosed how much of a BURDEN Bezo’s business is placing on our postal system, or that foreign entities pay pennies on the dollar to deliver their products to Americans, while only Americans pay hefty prices.

  5. The Post Office itself has said the losses come from 1st class mail and from the debt service to pay the pension funding that was decreed. PACKAGE DELIVERY SERVICE duing this pandemic has increased and given them additonal viabilty to longer.

    So it’s not the discounts they give ebay, amazon, etsy, pirate ship or any other large mailer. It’s your cheap first class mail that is killing them – oh and that Parcel deal they made with ebay and the chinese sellers.

    The debt service on their pension fund ended in 2016, why are they still using that as an excuse?
