Postmaster General Gets Pay Bonus as Agency Falters


www.foxnews.com

As the U.S. Postal Service considers cutting delivery service in the face of dwindling mail volume and rising costs, the postmaster general received a big pay raise and a performance bonus last year, all authorized by Congress.

Postmaster General John Potter's base salary climbed to $265,000 last year from $186,000 in 2007. He also received a performance bonus of $135,000. In all his total compensation -- salary, bonuses, retirement benefits and other perks -- topped $850,000, a spokesman with the U.S. Postal Service told FOXNews.com on Wednesday.

At the same time, the Postal Service, an independent federal agency, is crumbling alongside the economy and as online communications increase competition. The Postal Service lost $2.8 billion last year when total mail volume recorded 202 billion pieces of mail, its largest single drop in history -- down more than 9 billion pieces from a year earlier.

Gosh you have to love the double standards of our loving and caring two party crime family in Washington. They do everything in their power to demonize businesses taking advantages of the taxpayers (which they should be demonized) but meanwhile taking raises for themselves even though they created the problems which lead us to where we are.

So now we see this. Another prime example of our government having no regard for the taxpayer. Take take take take who cares if our country is going down the drain. I truly feel our country is screwed. The corruption is so deep I dont think it can ever be reversed.

Rewarding failure is quickly becoming a well known government trademark. It won't be long before Congress gives themselves a nice bonus for their continuous failures. Double standards apply in Washington.
