Can someone please explain to me where this deranged idea came from that the US Postal Service needs to “operate like a business” and “be profitable”? Last I checked, mail delivery was a government service just like building and maintaining roads, police and fire departments, air traffic control, DMVs, etc.
Where did this fucked uppe sicke notion come from that postage is supposed to be the sole source of funds to operate the postal service? Do motor vehicle registration and driver’s license fees fully support your state’s DMV? Does anyone even ask that question or think they should?
