Two thoughts: First, If the Obama administration is closing USPS locations with the same criteria it closed the 789 Chrysler dealerships, where only the dealerships supporting the Republican Candidates were closed down (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/Furor-grows-over-partisan-car-dealer-closings-46261447.html) you can anticipate that only USPS locations in the Red States will be targeted anyway. Second: if 220,000 jobs are at risk and the USPS is $9B in the red, provide productivity and technology incentives that will keep the employment levels consistent and reduce the losses - if we're going to raise taxes $447 Billion to fund the idiotic Job's Bill, take 9 billion and incentivize the USPS. The jobs bill will cost over $120K per person for each government or private sector temporary job created (over the average normal unemployment numbers of 6.7%), while creating incentives for the USPS would only cost $40K for each of the 220,000 they plan on terminating by 2015. Sure there is fat in the USPS - lots of it - but instead of giving up to Fed X and UPS, find ways to compete with them. Fed X and UPS don't deliver on Saturday's without a premium. Fed X and UPS aren't crying poor mouth... Don't you think that the USPS and Amazon.com could team up and find some exciting ways to give FED-X and UPS a run for their money?
