65. I suspect we are just going to go around in circles from here.

 

We agree that Congress must get out of the way. However, until they reverse the funding issue which is what is truly causing the financial issues (not technological advances alone!), then no, the Post Office can not see clearly how to correct any problems it may or may not have.

The market did not demand that Saturday mail service be cut. With the severe financial deficits from the pre-funding, after cutting labor (which you are well aware of), this was the next logical but still reactionary step in a process that may lead to break-up or killing of the Post Office altogether.

Would they have cut service in this way if they did not have the financial deficit? You want to argue yes, but I am unconvinced. I want to argue no, but you are unconvinced.

So we must leave it at that.
