Save the Postal Service — Save American Jobs

Peter DeFazio

Imagine if PERS had to pre-fund its benefits for the next 75 years. Think, for just a moment, on what a massive impact that would have on our school budgets and all the rest. Impossible.

But that’s exactly what the Congress has done to the US Postal Service in one of its most ridiculous acts of the decade. That’s why the USPS is always in the red! If they didn’t have to meet that absurd requirement, they’d be $1.5 billion in the black!

Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio, one of our brighter lights from Eugene-Springfield, says it’s time to stop the insanity. We cant agree more. Jump on board.
