  •  UPS is just awful,I have been getting packages (14+ / 0-)

    regularly for years but often they have trouble finding my house, so they just leave it outside another address and say they delivered it.  It takes days to figure it all out and I have filed many a complaint.  

    The USPS is reliable and a bargain too.  I was reading some articles where the price of a first class stamp to send a greeting card or letter could be considerably more expensive than the current cost of a stamp.  It could be up to 100 times higher.  

    If USPS is privatized, the cost of mailing a letter, a card, even a package or a padded envelope ..could be quite costly,.

    And I am highly biased as my dad was a USPS carrier for 30 years and it was because of his job and union that I grew up in a middle class home and we had good insurance and Dad was able to make a decent wage. Then after he retired, both of my parents were diagnosed with cancer and because of his insurance plus medicare, he paid very little out of pocket for care.

    It is because of the USPS, that I grew up how I did and that my dad was able to help us get through college and grad school and help us out during tough times.
