Once again that idiot purportedly in charge and his fuckwitted minions are making things worse. The USPS is in trouble and this administration wants them to fail to spite Amazon (dude you’re never gonna get over having less money than Bezos are you?). Which of course is a bullshit excuse because conservatives have been wanting to shank the Post Office and privatize it for years. Decades. Of course now that everyone is talking about vote-by-mail the impetus to kill the USPS is even stronger. They managed to get some money in the latest stimulus bill but were cockblocked from going further by Mnuchin who of course wants the USPS to go under.
I know all the idiots who want this have no concept of reality but honestly who the fuck do they think is gonna come out to rural route 1027 and deliver that tax bill? No one that’s who if the USPS dies. As it is postal workers are already at risk of dying because of the coronavirus and are of course short of protective gear.
If they let the USPS do bank accounts many of the problems would be solved and neighborhoods would have access to vital banking tools that they need. Of course that would damage scumbags like paycheck loans and check cashing operators so naturally it’s a non starter.
*********The Post Office by the way would be in much better shape if they didn’t have to pre-fund their pension plan 75 YEARS in advance. Guess who decided that was a great idea? (If you said Republicans you get a gold bucket to vomit into. Funny how no other gov’t or private company has that onerous responsibility)*********
