Looking for ways to boost revenue for the U.S. Postal Service's money-losing operations, the Trump administration is suggesting selling access to mailboxes.

"The legal mailbox monopoly remains highly valuable," said a government report issued last week. "As a means of generating more income, the mailbox monopoly could be monetized."

Since we are paying for the post office service, why are we paying to use it (stamps). It's the same as we paying for roads yet we have to pay to use it (tolls).

It's should be like FedEx. I don't use it. I don't get charged a dime.

Now you know it don't work that way.  With the government if you don't use it, you are even taxed more.   :sneaky:
