The PO would not be losing money if it wasn't hammered by Congress forcing them to fund their (the PO) health care for 75 years in advance.

The current congress is the most worthless group of individuals ever to be given the important task of deciding the future of our great nation! If they wanted to perform a great service to the American people, then everyone of them should resign and stay out of politics for the rest of their lives.

The USPS has the unfortunate task of balancing its obligation to every citizen and dealing with a shifting world where "snail mail" is far less in demand. These are cost problems.

It also has to deal with the repercussions from poor decisions with public unions and Congress.

The USPS has to provide a service consistently and unchanged in a changing world. That is the crux of the problem.

Do I have to come to the P-J office and beat someone over the head for printing falsehoods about the post office? You continue to print what you have heard from sources other than those in the know. Do you realize that if the Buffalo center was closed your papers would go to Rochester before coming back to this area? Do you think with the winter weather that this would be a good idea? Ever drive to Rochester and back in a WNY snowstorm? Might take more than a day, or 2 or 3. Your circulation might be affected, you think? And the PO has been downsizing employees for a number of years. Please get some FACTS before doing any more articles like this.

The USPS is the main problem?

Guess the facts about the massive mail volume and revenue losses in the past 10 years aren't on this OP/EDs radar.

There are a combination of factors in this issue.

Who needs all this junk mail every day anyway? I say deliver only twice a week - Tuesday and Friday. If you are a business or need something mailed overnight use another service. We don't need to get this junk mail every day!

The problem is the Post Office wants to run itself like a business, making decisions based on finances, profit and loss, efficiency and so on. Congress wants it to run like a government bureaucracy, making decisions based solely on making a few constituents and lobbyists happy.
