Editorial: Why the U.S. Postal Service needs to be reformed

Back When President Bush43 was trying to balance the deficit plunge we had before his first bailout, Congress decided to place on postage the retirement portion of the military service pensioners are allowed to use in determining years of service. This one act has produced a yearly cost to the Postal service that would more then keep the postal service solvent.
Another huge point of contention that keeps the Postal service struggling to keep balance books is the number of Post Offices that Congress would not allow closed due to the people not wanting their own identity of a zipcode to be gone. This blocking has come to a near end as many small post offices are closing which is a huge cost savings for the Service.
If everyone knew all there is to know, they would not do half the things they do, including myself, therefore I must foregive them, including myself.
