I wonder if the members of this organization will support a major tax increase upon themselves to help fund the ever increasing taxpayer bailout of the USPS…put your money where your mouth is…. and don’t give the the healthcare prepayment BS….that check hasn’t been written in several years and the taxpayers are going to have to fund postal healthcare for retirees when it’s all said and done with anyway.

Shouldn’t these deadbeats who are protesting during a weekday be working?… I doubt they care enough about the postal service to take a vacation day to participate in this foolishness.

Keep in mind, the OIG left out the fraud and scams run by contractors. https://www.uspsoig.gov/document/contract-delivery-service-costs
