http://news.yahoo.com/postal-plan-save-20-billion-white-house-170626630.html They think they are going to save 20 billion dollars over the next few years by getting rid of saturday mail. This just means more work on mondays to sort and get ready the mail. Maybe if that doesnt work, they will get rid of friday mail and that will save 40 billion! Then thursday mail and that will be 60 billion! Heck...just not deliver the mail at all and its all profit!!! The only way to make the post office profitable is double the price of stamps. The post office sells about 30 billion stamps per year. Double the price and thats an extra 13 billion per year.
