The biggest millstone they're ot getting rid of in that bill was the law passed during the previous administration that required the post office to massively pre-fund the retirement and pension system. That's what has pshed the system to the breaking point.

That's good cutting edge news. Sorry man. Seems like a good thing can't last forever. :-\ The knife is at our throats too. Medicare cuts in October are looming. :'( Boo...

It's not religion or politics and since the second post was from an Admin., I guessed it was okay to continue it.
