4. I think this is why the Republicans left without addressing the Post Office default

The post office has the largest (I believe) organized labor force in this Country. They want it to fail so it will have to be privatized. I believe that is the reason for the original 2003 provision requiring it put 75 years worth of funds away for future pensions and health care. No other entity has been required by law to do this, and I am thinking that provision was enough to take the Post Office down (they thought). I am totally against privatizing the Post Office and I am a big supporter of unions. Never belonged to one because of the nature of my work (there was no organized labor at my places of employment). I give credit to the great benefits and fair pay unions have acquired for the work force across the country.
