So when is this country going to do away with USPS and go fully privatized?
I mean out government wants to privatize prisons and get the government out of it, but they don't want to get out of their horrible postal service..
Sound a little backwards to anyone but me?
Possibly when they can't make any money off USPS anymore. I'm not sure, but I'll bet the post office is currently set up like the patent office was. Before the America Invents act (which isn't perfect but a lot better) the money the USPTO made was not theirs to keep but would be part of the entire federal budget. Basically, they didn't get to make any profit because whatever revenue there is above their costs gets pulled away and put to something else. If the USPS is the same then it isn't hard to see why it does not improve because success and innovation gets them nothing.
Also, I'm pretty sure in-office politicians are allowed to mail things for free with the post office currently. If you privatize it, they may lose that, so guess who is never going to vote for privatization.
