This is dire news indeed.

We depend on the U.S. Government to pay for the delivery of our product to our customers!

What are we supposed to do? . . . Pay to Fed-Ex these papers all over the place?

How dare those dirty Communist - socialists implement the budget cut-backs we've been angrily demanding!

"Newspapers rely on the Postal Service to deliver our product to thousands of customers every day . . ."

Get off welfare.

Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps.

Stop asking everybody else to pay your way.

This country has too many takers and not enough makers.

No more free stuff.

"I believe that anyone or anything that has the potential for govt. subsidy/bailout should have to stock up assets..ie (retainer) for the potential of collapse/handout... This could/should insure the taxpayers won't have to come to the rescue again.....yea right! Citizens should take a stand on this issue and simply tell Congress that this law is unconstitutional unless it includes all potential institutions that have the potential to be bailed out....period."

Common sense, Veritas. Good on ya!

ProgressiveLiberal: You aren't really correct when you say this was an "entirely republican" created. While the following bills were introduced in early 2005 by republicans, they had numberous democrat cosponsors. HR.22 1/4/2005 and S.622 3/11/2005. S.622 had 26 cosponsors of which 15 of them were democrats. Those two bills were reconciled to become HR.6407 which was introduce 12/7/2006. On 12/8/2006 it passed the house and on 12/9/2006 it UNANIMOUSLY passed the senate. Not one democrat voted NO. Am I disagreeing that this might have been a republican agenda item ... no. I am saying both parties share responsibility. Oh, BTW it became public law 109-0435 on 12/20/2006.

Funny how when the blame for the USPS's problems are entirely republican created, the MDN fails to mention who the culprits are by name. Two faced editorial board.

I used to think that we should have only 3-day-a-week delivery of mail.

I have come together with high-information voters, the ones that are getting our Democrat Party steam-rolled into office, have come together with them in that we need MORE employment. And that we should IMMEDIATELY implement 7-day-a-week delivery by the postal service.

Can we not all reach across the aisle in knowing that will move the USPS forword....and thus move the nation forword?

How about eliminating work days for Congress from 5 days per week to 0?

All 300 million US citizens would be free at last. Every single soul would rejoice, choirs would sing, dancing in the streets, children would finally be happy once more.

The world would go from dismal gray to bright, shiny colors in a New York minute.

I would be more than happy to deliver the bad news to Congress.
