We need to save the post office. The Postmaster General wants to close over half of the mail processing centers and over 3,000 mostly rural post offices. And his plan includes laying off almost 220,000 workers. In this economy, that's the last thing we need.

Rural post offices in particular are important institutions. Closing them, especially in areas with little or no access to broadband internet service, could have a major impact on the communities they serve. And closing them won't save much money.

Collectively, all the post offices being considered for closure account for a miniscule amount, four-tenths of one percent, of the postal service's annual budget. As one former Postmaster General said, "That's not even a drop in the bucket. The bucket won't ripple."

I just signed a petition telling Congress to save the post office. I hope you do, too.

You can find more information and sign the petition at the link below.

What is wrong with the Republicans?  Besides insanity, I would say money!!!  They are bought and paid for by rich corporations.  I hope that we can get our campaign laws changed.

True, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that, I just hope we can save our post office.
