Avoiding Lost Jobs at the Post Office

The Nation’s John Nichols reports that the U.S. Post Office is a target for major cost and job cuts.  However, these cuts will not be needed if relatively simple reforms are made.  A group of Senators, led by Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is advocating reforms to the USPS pension system (which collects too much money) and restructuring of service, which will enable post offices to earn more revenue.  That’s a good jobs program, one that will pay for itself while letting the post office provide its customers better service.  Who could be against that?*

*Yes, it is a rhetorical question.
