Jim Albany Sherrill Franklin It was Congress that insisted the USPS must fund its pensions 75 years in advance. This means that pensions for employees who aren’t even hired yet have to be fully funded. As such, some mail facilities have to close for the USPS to survive financially. Sinking the USPS is absolutely the goal of more than a few legislators. I hope they enjoy sending their legislative newsletters to constituents under a "private mail system" for $3 per letter.
