The senate has approved a $34 BILLION dollar bailout for the post office.
Look, the post office should be run like a business instead of another wasteful government agency. Their union contract is killing them. They are inefficient. Their service sucks and a lot of the employees are mean to customers. Strike one, two, three and four. Let UPS and FedEx deliver regular mail, (you know they can't, right?) so that the post office no longer has a monopoly, force them to get leaner, more efficient and customer friendly. You know what, even with all that, they are still doomed. The government has no business in any kind of business. They should leave that to the professionals.
Oh, and in case you didn't know it, that $34 BILLION dollars will be OUR money. More of our tax dollars thrown down the toilet.
