Remaking the Post Office

Ron Nixon writes in the New York Times: “During a hearing, Patrick R. Donahoe, the postmaster general, asked Congress to give the Postal Service permission to run its own health plan for employees and retirees, modify a Congressional mandate that requires the agency to pay $5.5 billion a year into its fund for future employee health benefits, and end Saturday mail delivery. Mr. Donahoe said the changes would allow the agency to save $20 billion by 2016. Ending Saturday mail delivery would save the Postal Service about $2 billion annually, according to its estimates. … A new Gallup poll finds that six in 10 Americans support spiking Saturday mail delivery.
