Raising the price of stamps again – forever

The "forever" stamp

I say raise the price of stamps to a dollar and be done with it. What is this $.41 or $.44 stuff? Just raise it to a number that can be easily calculated and be done with it. I’m sick of the USPS nickle and diming us every year. I’m with the numbers who believe that stamps are already too high but let’s get real. If this stupid government run agency is $7billion in the red, 2 cents a year will do nothing to fix it. Well, it will raise $2billion for them but that’s not going to fix the problem.

It’s just stupid.

There is no fixing this thing. They will never be fiscally responsible. They will never run this thing like a private business would be run. No business could continue to function in this kind of debt and yet, we keep bailing them out, every year to the tune of a couple pennies. No one in government will be gutsy enough to drop the reigns and either let this become privatized or let it just die.

Privatizing the post office, as well as AmTrak, would be the smartest thing the government could do. But when, in current times, did the government do any thing smart?

It’s definite that they aren’t saying anything smart:
