US Postal Service wants 5-cent
increase for first-class stamps

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/11/2018 11:35:28 AM

Washington — The US Postal Service is seeking to increase the price of its first-class stamp by 5 cents to 55 cents to help stem its mounting red ink. If approved by regulators, the 10 percent increase to the cost of mailing a 1-ounce letter would be the biggest since 1991. The price of each additional ounce would go down, from 21 cents to 15 cents. The proposed increase would take effect in January. It comes as President Donald Trump has criticized the Postal Service for “losing a fortune” by not charging higher shipping rates for online retailers such as Amazon.com.

Comments:
US postal service makes special runs on Sundays, delivering packages for Amazon customers who just can´t wait to get their stuff, yet can´t keep above water on its lavish pension obligations. Solution? Hike the prices some more, stiffing the dwindling number of elderly people who still pay bills by paper checks.

How about me and my friends just quit buying from Amazon so you won´t lose anymore money on them.

This "elderly" person prefers surface mail and paper checks. I also prefer writing and sending actual cards to people.

The Post Office has been running in the red since the 1970s. Only after FedEx and UPS were created did anybody take notice because a monopoly does not care what customers think, especially a government monopoly. Now they are a dinosaur trying to compete in a modern world and the rate of inefficiency is increasing. I can´t remember the last time I used a stamp.

Actually there will be no increase in the cost of postage- the added 5 cents is to cover storage

They are not a monopoly anymore. Raising the price of stamps will just drive more people to use electronic payment and email (and FedEx and UPS). And their service is already terrible.
Is there ever a time when there is no line at the post office? Surly clerks, long lines, high costs. The USPS is a a preview of government-run health care.

Why not convert all of your local postal trucks into electric, which will save you on the spikes in gasoline prices, AND you´d be helping the environment at the same time.

You can install a charging station at each postal location too, and charge people if they too need to charge their electric vehicles.

Install solar panels on every post office too, some will be able to use that energy more than other, but again, would be helping to reduce your costs by using alternative energy.

#3, no offense meant. I used "the elderly" (toss in "minorities and the poor") as trigger words to indicate where the cost burden will fall, using the tactic of the left.

How about stop allowing advertisers to deluge us with junk mail (as bulk mail)for pennies on the dollar?! Insist that ALL mail be sent first class. They´d either up their revenues astronomically, or have a LOT less stuff to deliver. Oh...I see the problem. LOL

O.K.None taken. Also ,though some are really bad like cartoon characters, I like the different stamps and what they reflect....reprints of the old biplane air mail stamp, Ronald Reagan stamp, religious Christmas stamps ( I´m Jewish)and my personal favorite, a stamp that commemorated the Stamp Act of 1765.

Not like the other folks are any cheaper. I needed to do an overnight mail letter yesterday and decided to go with UPS. Cost $51 for 3 pm next day delivery.

Just found that USPS rate for 12 noon next day delivery was $24.70 or $24.95.

Actually what we call "junk mail" or 3rd class mail, does more than pay for itself. 3rd Class mailers are required to pre-sort and take other steps so that carriers simply pick up their bundles and go. I know because I used to use 3rd class mailings in my business. Some of the big costs to the USPS in mailing are 2nd Class material which includes subscription newspapers and magazines.

As the dollar steadily shrinks, the labor and fuel cost of delivering a letter does not.

For those who weren´t there, a brand new full sized Chevy automobile could be purchased for $2500 in 1965. A VW bug was $1900. So, the cost of a car is up by a factor of 10, or greater. Gasoline to fuel that car cost about 23 cents per gallon, about 19.9 cents at the cheap stations. Also, more than a ten times cost increase for fuel. (Cali was over $4 at many stations last week when I visited).

A first class stamp cost 5 cents in 1965. Ten times that is 50 cents. So, postage is pretty much keeping up with inflation.

Raise it to $1.00- get it over with. Let the Postal Workers all get every thing they want. Watch the Democrats howl.

"Trump can´t give the Postal Workers everything they want! How can we keep them on our hook if they get what they want from Trump?"

Yep- I´d gladly pay it if the Democrats were to get a big pie in their face! Besides- What´s a lousy 52 cents worth these days? I already pay $125.00 for Amazon Prime and it is the best money I ever spent. I dropped Commie DemocRat infested Netflix, HBO, Showtime, NFL Network and Google. Boy what a deal! I´ve been happy ever since.

My Father-in-Law died in April. We filed a mail forwarding form so that we could pay his final bills and notify unknown friends of his passing. He received 3-6 pieces of mail daily asking for contributions to political organizations and charities at his old address. Our wonderful post office (Sarc/Off) notified all these organizations of his new address so now they are addressed to him at our address. Coming back from vacation, we had a shopping bag full of these requests for money. What´s wrong with this picture. "Return to Sender" does not work for reduced rate mailings, only first class.

I know a few retired postal workers, and they have one hell of a great retirement. I thought my retirement from private industry was good, but these people have, along with their medical insurance, great benefits. Over time, my plans have been altered, and my contributions have increased. Public plans don´t (aren´t allowed) to be modified.

I will gladly pay the 5 cent increase if they lower the cost of renting a post office box. It keeps going up. You would think I am saving them the cost of delivering the mail.

Why not fire the post master general or the committee over him? No CEO in any other business would be allowed to keep their job with a loss every year.

You would think they would be happy to print more stamps for collectors. A few years back, I wrote and asked why they wouldn´t reissue the Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary stamps (printed before Celebrations). An AA employee assured me they never had such stamps.

Sell off the Zip Codes to the private sector. Of course, you would have to have it somewhat regulated such as Government checks arriving on the first, but direct deposit takes care of that. No more taxpayer expense and a better run system. No more horse and buggy in a Jetson century.

President Donald Trump is poking fun at former Joe Biden on a day when both politicians were campaigning in Nevada for candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot. Trump was in rural Elko, Nevada, for a rally a short time after Biden appeared hundreds of mile south in Las Vegas. The president mocked the potential 2020 White House contender as ‘1 percent Joe’ - a reference to Biden’s low showing in earlier presidential runs. Trump said Barack Obama came along in 2008 and took Biden “off of the trash heap and made him vice president.” Trump boasted of the size of

Harvard University “rolled out the red carpet” for applicants with ties to influential donors, according to stunning emails revealed as part of a lawsuit that claims the school’s admissions process is discriminatory. The correspondences revealed Wednesday show that officials catered to certain recruits with upstanding pedigrees over others, including the student who received the royal treatment after his family gave $1.1 million over the course of four years. The men’s tennis coach fired off a thank-you email in 2014 to longtime admissions dean William Fitzsimmons, saying “it would mean a great deal” to see that student at Harvard.

The top U.S. general in Afghanistan barely escaped Thursday after a brazen attack during a high-level security meeting in Kandahar where Afghan guards turned their guns on American forces, claiming the lives of three top provincial officials. Afghan TV reported that members of the Kandahar province governor’s elite guards began firing on Americans and Afghan officials during the meeting, which included Gen. Scott Miller, the head of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan. Two American troops were wounded in the assault, while Afghan police Chief Abdul Raziq was killed. At least two other Afghan officials also were killed

Doug Jones of Alabama, a Democrat who represents one of the reddest states in the country but has been voting, at times, like a New England liberal.

Latina immigrants in New York City have seen a spike in premature births – an increase that researchers with the city’s health department say may be tied to the shock win by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. The study released Wednesday by the health department and Harvard’s TH Chan School of Public Health compared births in the city in the months before Trump won the Republican presidential nomination, from September 2015 through July 2016, with births in the months after he was inaugurated, from January to August 2017. There was no change in babies born prematurely – or before 37

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico. Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile. It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night.

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power
