Matt Rothschild: GOP Drive To Crush Postal Service Must Be Opposed

Matt Rothschild, editor of The Progressive, explains why the Postal Service’s decision to abolish Saturday delivery is a "fool's errand." It will benefit their competitors, hurt the vulnerable and result in thousands of lost jobs. Rothschild rightly blames the Postal Service’s deficit on the Republican-controlled Congress during the Bush administration, which passed a bill requiring it to fully fund, over one decade, retirement healthcare benefits for the next 75 years. That bill, Rothschild concludes, is part of the “Republican drive to crush unions and privatize everything. That's why it must be opposed.” Listen:
