One thought on “Testimony from Joint Senate and House Hearing on the USPS

  1. As a letter carrier, I am so disappointed that 5 day is even being considered. The many jobs that will be lost should be a major factor as well as the additional strain on the economy it would cause. Why have we lost sight that it is the United States Postal SERVICE (not BUSINESS!) If we try to turn it into a business as Mr. Potter is trying so desperately to do, we will be out of business. I’ve already notified netflix that if my subscription price goes up along with getting fewer deliveries of movies, I will cancel my subscription. I do not want strangers that are hired day labor to snoop around my home deliving saturday magazines . It would be a great oportunity for thieves when they see you’ve been on vacation for 2 weeks! I’m sure there are people chomping at the bit to take that service from us. Many of my business customers have already stated they would give more business to UPS and Fedex if we go to 5 day……..where is Potter’s future business model for that! Please keep our jobs and the trust of the American People. They have only been given a partial picture of the reality of this proposal.
