Issa: USPS Needs Systemic Changes to Efficiently Manage Operating Costs


Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, delivers his opening statement explaining the need for the United States Postal Service to bring its operating costs in line with its declining revenues. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing entitled, “Are Postal Workforce Costs Sustainable?” The hearing examined the sustainability and affordability of the postal workforce, in light of the United States Postal Service’s financial situation and the disproportionate share of total USPS expenses consumed by workforce costs. Workforce compensation expenses currently comprise 80 percent of all USPS costs. April 5, 2011

    It is obvious that the USPS needs to be privitized and special salaries and perks eliminated. Prices keep rising and service steadily declines. In NV we now have service only 5 days a week, and in many small towns the POs are open for svc only 6 hrs a day for those 5 days. They also do not get home delivery, and have to go to the PO to pick up their mail or make transactions. Too bad if a rancher or someone who lives miles away comes during the hour they close for lunch.

    How about amend the constitution and rid the tax payers of the USPS
