Well, that's what makes the Republicans (the same clowns who think you should be assigned a .38 with your birth certificate [short form only] efforts to kill the Postal Service even more galling.
Part of this effort was the mandate the Postal Service report its pension and medical benefit obligations in a way no business would, turning the service into an apparent huge money loser -- to the point the USPS wishes to cancel Saturday mail delivery.
Thereby making you get yet another lesser government benefit by gaming the system.
Well about that.
The U.S. Postal Service must deliver the mail six days a week, said Congress' watchdog arm in a Thursday legal opinion.
The legal opinion from the nonpartisan agency throws new questions on the Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe's plans to stop delivering first-class mail, but keep delivering packages and express mail on Saturdays.
The U.S. Government Accountability Office stopped short of saying the U.S. Postal Service's August plan to end most Saturday mail service violates current law.
The U.S. Postal Service says it's not ending six-day delivery, only changing it, since it'll still deliver packages on Saturdays.
However, GAO's report could make it easier to file a lawsuit to stop the U.S. Postal Service, if it decides to continue with service cuts as previously announced.
