Privatize the Post Office

There is a great article on the woes of the US Postal Service in today’s WashingtonPost. According to the article, Postmaster General John Potter went in front of Congress today and warned that unless the Feds coughed up several billion dollars the PO would need to implement massive layoffs and cut delivery from 6 to 5 days per week (here).

Here is an idea, why don’t we just privatize the Post Office. I don’t know about the rest of you, but in my view the federal budget is strained enough as it is. Plus, historically the postal service has consistently lost money and delivered substandard service. It’s high time it was done away with and the taxpayers stop sinking money into an inefficient operation.
