The U.S. Postal Service could become “a significant burden to the taxpayer” if it does not get needed flexibility to change its business operations, Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe told Congress Wednesday.
“We are losing $25 million dollars every day and we are on an unsustainable path,” he added.

Are you sure the USPS isn't going obsolete due to email and businesses using printable downloads instead of snail mail?
If people are looking for ways to firm up the USPS, I have to ask, are we really supposed to? The post office is being hit by progress. There used to be little print shops, but home printers took them out and the world didn't fall apart. Maybe it's time to let this old dog die.

I should have quoted you:
"A solution would be that EVERYONE use email for everything (sending letters and bills) and phone/internet payment methods."
I wasn't being mean. Simply offering you the opportunity for YOU to do what YOU want and I'LL do what *I* want.
I don't think that FREE email and bill-pay today will be that way in the future. When they offer cheap, free and convenient, surely you realize you are giving up some privacy? When the time is right, expect an email fee!
