Republicans say: Post Office doesn’t work
This is not the first lie Republicans have told, nor the biggest lie –but the most urgent lie. Rally: Tuesday September 27
Who would —go all that way –to a rural address –work for so little money? US Post Office –would not only pick up my papers, but Guarantee to deliver Directly to address –within only a few days –for so little money.
US Post Office –“not profitable, near bankrupt –bloated with too many employees, reduce the workforce –a for-profit company could do it better, privatize PO” –True?
- PO relatively new idea ‘borrowed’ from others, outdated *True *False
- UPS, FedEx: make more money, do job better than PO *True *False
- Americans like PO, taxpayers should keep funding OOO*True *False
- PO doesn’t make money -0OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-*True *False
- FALSE -Benjamin Franklin was actually the ‘father’ of the Post Office –founders put the Post Office in the US Constitution, the oldest institution in America
- FALSE -Every day UPS and FedEx: use the PO to ship their packages that would not be profitable for them to deliver –e.g., to rural addresses
- FALSE -It’s a trick question: though government oversees their function –PO receives NO federal money –taxpayers stopped funding the Post Office in 1982
- FALSE -PO makes money every year, 1st quarter 2011: made over $240 Million profit
So what’s going on?
Polls: over 80% of Americans like the Post Office –support it –need it –want it to stick around, care about it. Last year: US Post Office did $65 Billion dollars of business and makes a profit every quarter. So: Why is PO saying they are broke? What’s going on? –Too many Postal offices –too many employees?
I’ve been using same post office for years, I know the employees: Workforce cut long ago, during Ronald Reagan recession, 1982. –One employee moves from office to office —every two hours. Now most offices don’t have enough staff and my long-time friend must fill in –all over town. How would you like to sit down to work –then move –to a new desk –all day, every day?
Why doesn’t the Post Office have money –Why does director of Post Office say they’re broke –why are Republicans complaining?
During the last Administration –when Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress and the White House: they changed the rules. Republicans made laws that require the Post Office to fund next 75 Years of health benefits for employees –within 10 years.
No business anywhere in the world, public or private –could pay 75 years worth of bills in only ten years –and still stay in business.
Why did the Republicans change the laws –require benefits be paid in advance? You’ll have to ask Republicans.
What is known: Republicans do not like unions, they want Post Office to fire needed employees –bust unions –in violation of numerous previously-agreed contracts, so thousands of employees –could join millions of already-unemployed. Why? Ask Republicans.
What is the solution –organic, creative, thoughtful Remedy for this craziness? You can get angry –or you can get over to a Post Office –join millions of Americans Tuesday September 27 –across the US: protest –closing of Post Offices –firing of needed employees –destroying Post Offices
