  1. Congress should raise USPS debt ceiling. Do not close any offices as customers are standing in line to mail. Need more Post Officies than Starbucks and McDonalds as demand to mail has increased volume and revenue generation to maintain or increase new Post Officies. Management salaries should be increased as Pay For Performance has created productivity and record numbers in meeting goals. Sat. mail deliveryshould be AM as well PM. Reduce debt ceiling and offer an early out as this would reduce expenses. This approach maybe too simple as it makes cents in reducing red to bottomline. PRC is history as it has no justification in making real decisions as it need is history.
