The U.S. Post Master General announced that beginning summer 2013 there will be no more Saturday delivery or collection of first class mail. This situation was created by a 2006 lame duck congress determined to privatize ownership of government services for the benefit of private sector competition (such as FedEx and UPS).
The United States Postal Service's current economic struggles were created by Congress when they passed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006. It is unfair and unreasonable to ask the USPS to fund 7 decades of benefits when no other government agency or private company is asked to do that. The USPS employs thousands of people and serves millions each day. It is a national treasure. Please urge Congress to repeal this harmful legislation.
