Goal: To save the US Postal Service & To provide competition in US Banking and Financial Affairs
Solution: A financially viable means by which to save the US Postal service through the added provision of community banking services. It simply means creating attractive and affordable financial products to compete in the open market via thousands of existing US Post offices. In other words ‘A Financial Public Option’.
Excerpt from ‘Truthout’
” Neither rain nor sleet nor snow may have stopped the Pony Express, but the nation’s oldest and second-largest employer is now under attack. Claiming the United States Postal Service (USPS) is bankrupt, critics are pushing legislation that would defuse the postal crisis by breaking the backs of the postal workers’ unions and mandating widespread layoffs.
But the “crisis” is an artificial one, created by Congress itself. The USPS is one of the few businesses the government is allowed to operate in competition with private companies; it is the only US agency that services all its citizens six days per week; and it is perhaps the last form of communication that protects privacy, since tampering with it is against federal law”.
