  •  It's slightly misleading (0+ / 0-)

    The initial increase request in 2011 was denied on 1 oz letters, but it was approved on the additional ounces. Also the rate has gone up in 2012 and 2013.

    •  No...it's not misleading... (4+ / 0-)

      What is misleading is your characterization of this tiptoe toward the slippery slope as no big deal, when the logical extension of this development is to pare down postal activity and replace it with for-profit, privatized carriers...most of which will price many people out of the market.

      But by all means, continue defending the dismantling of the USPS until one day they deliver 3 days a week...or not at all.
