From The Heritage Foundation:

The U.S. Postal Service is in deep trouble and potentially faces the real risk of going bankrupt this year, with taxpayers left to pay the tab. Despite declining mail volume, many Americans depend on the Postal Service to deliver to them essential goods from food to medicine.

Private delivery companies move a lot of packages, but don’t go to every household in the country. Some suggest the U.S. Postal Service is too big to fail, while others point at successful privatization of postal services in other countries as a viable option. Something we can all agree on is that the Postal Service’s finances are unsustainable and reform is critical.
