facts are wrong
How about the Darrell Issa Postal act of 2006 that required the USPS to fund 75 years of benefits in 10 years. Fed Ex and UPS lobbyists want to destroy USPS. Where did all that money go? Where is all that money? Congress is robbing USPS and trying to privatize America to corporations.
Romney wanted to Privatize FEMA? So now if you can not pay you die?
take the privatize and stuff it

It is ironic and some day this will have to be changed as the system cannot afford it. As far as excepting it they want the cash and many feel it's right. Have a great year!

Even IF someone wasted a few thousand dollars, our debt is in TRILLIONS of dollars (most of that accrued by REPUBLICAN presidents).
Don't wing-nuts EVER get tired of being WRONG about EVERYTHING?

Nobody accepts those bureaucrats, but nobody is doing anything about them either.
