Brooke talks with her panel about the latest cost-saving measure by the U.S. Postal Service in eliminating most Saturday delivery.
Congress should just step up and undo the ridiculous pension funding that was enacted by the 2006 Lame Duck Congress. The Post Office is not a government funded agency and should not be burdened by this legislation that no other agency has to abide by.
Carol Costello has just delivered a terrible injustice, in her reporting on the post office privitization. Show me any corporation, anywhere that is required to escrow 70 years of benefit payments on current and future employees. This is what the Bush congress years delivered us. You don't even get the promised pensions that "Corp america" has already withheld.
You certainly won't get universal coverage; as it is right now there are plenty of places that FedEx and the other firms won't deliver to, So you can expect large portions of the country to loose service completly. So what will the future hold; we pump our own gas so now we will deliver our own mail - most likely have to drive to the postal outlet and pick up our own mail.
I want to voice my concern over the broader issue of reporting only part of the story. This seems to be occuring with more and more frequency. it seems that if the tea party barks, or the GOP or Limbaugh spouts off, the 24/7 news reporters modify their reporting to sound more agreeable. Sad, Sad, Sad; but this is what happens when news becomes entertainment and no longer is news.
