Would You Miss Saturday Mail Delivery?

A proposal would end Saturday first-class mail delivery.

The U.S. Postal Service is reportedly announcing on Wednesday that it will stop Saturday first-class mail delivery by Aug. 1, reported CBS News

Mail personnel have delivered mail on Saturdays for 150 years, but the plan is to end regular mail service, while maintaining Saturday delivery for packages and express mail, said CBS News.

The move is the latest attempt by the cash-strapped federal department to save money. It has already cut employees and service, but still reportedly lost $16 billion last year.

What do you think about this idea? Would you miss Saturday mail service?

Think they should do away with mail delivery by the post office every day and give it to private companies. Post office is totally worthless and government employees just sucking off the system until they get their bloated retirement.

Today Rick Learned The US Postal Service Delivers 30% of FedEx's packages. (UPS uses USPS, too.) FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS) both want the post office to survive. For starters, FedEx earned $1.495 billion from the Postal Service last year as the agency’s number one supplier. UPS, the Postal Service’s 11th largest supplier, earned $102 million from the Postal Service, a $7 million increase from the year before.

I would miss it. Its the principle. Darrell Issa R Ca..set up the sceam whereby the PO was the only agency that has to prepay their Pensions. This is wrong and if you disagree then thats your choice. I say if they do it to the Po make Congress prepay theirs.
