Can someone explain to me why the US government gives billions in foreign aide to countries that are not even allies, bails out banks etc. but cannot bailout the US Postal service upon whom this country relies? Yes, the union representing postal works needs to make some concessions; yes, some post offices need to close; yes, some changes need to be made like five day work week delivery and every other day delivery on rural routes. We need our postal service. Bail it out.
