Postage costs may go up again

The price of sending mail may be going up — again.

The US postal service board will look into hiking postage prices on all types of mail.

It would affect first-class mail as well as businesses that mail periodicals, newspapers, magazines and marketing material.

This proposal comes after the postal service shelved a plan to end saturday service because they didn’t have legal authority to do so.

The postal service has been struggling financially because of a 2006 congressional mandate that requires healthcare benefits for future retirees be pre-funded.

    美国邮政局亏损如此严重,就应该即刻关闭,才是明智的决定。不应该让纳税人来承担美国邮政局的亏损,更不应该让纳税人长期养亏损的美国邮政局,所以即刻关闭是最好的选择,为什么另外的私人邮递公司没有亏损呢?而美国政府开设的美国邮政局却出现庞大的亏损,就是纳税人长期养了一帮寄生虫,所以造成庞大的亏损,如果不即刻关闭,纳税人会导致没有退休金领取的那一天。
