Ever since the federal government began to explode during the Franklin Roosevelt administration, government has proven time and time again that they can’t manage basic functions even remotely as efficiently as the private sector.
The United States Post Office is perhaps the most outrageous example of that.
The United States Postal Service has lost $51.7 billion between 2007 and 2014 and has not earned a profit since 2006, according to a report from the Tax Foundation.
“There is no turnaround in sight,” states the report. “The Postal Service will almost certainly register another multibillion dollar loss in 2015; for the first two quarters of 2015, it suffered a net loss of $2.8 billion.”
What a surprise. The federal government doesn’t know how to make a profit on something.
The amount of money that could be saved by reforming government programs could almost certainly cover the excessive taxes that Democrats in Washington are trying to place on the job creators of America.
Fed Ex and UPS don’t seem to have any trouble making a profit. I wonder if that has anything to do with the unbelievable amount of waste, corruption, and incompetence that permeates every level of the federal government to the point where billions of dollars are hemorrhaged away every year due to simple mismanagement.
Nah. Probably just the Republicans fault.
