  • I think so! We only get our mail whenever they feel like coming past our house and giving it to us! We went 2 weeks without mail for absoulutely NO reason. I'm really at my wits end!

  • OP here, why or why not?  Isn't the internet mostly taking over their job anyway?  Except for the junk mail, and we have to pay taxes and stamps just like we pay a fee to have UPS or FedEx ship things.

  • We don't support USPS with taxes. It's self-supporting through the services you buy from them.

  • Uh, how do you figure no more tax dollars? You would have hundreds of thousands of people unemployed added to the already mounting unemployment rate. I see the tax dollars going up already.

  • How many people pay their bills online? I know that I do a lot of mine that way, and so do many others. That's why postage is going up so much. They still have to deliver bills / letters / junk to your house, so they still have to employ a certain amount of people to sort and deliver mail.  But think about how much less expensive it is to send a letter via USPS compared to FedEx or UPS.
