    US Postal Service needs more autonomy - FTC report - Reuters

    The U.S. Postal Service is hurt more than it is helped by its status as a government entity, the Federal Trade Commission said in a study released on Wednesday.

    Federal constraints, such as restrictions on the postal service's ability to manage its labor force and configure its network, increase its costs by an estimated $330 million to $782 million a year, the FTC found.

    The USPS needs to privatize and get rid of the private express statutes. The government shouldn't be running a monopoly like the USPS.
