Postal Service Reports $5+ Billion Loss in 3 Months

The U.S. Postal Service has reported another staggering round of losses, and with Congress on vacation, any hope for relief is still a long way away.

FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

Nearly bankrupt, the U.S. Postal Service reports losses of more than $5 billion from April to June.  The bulk of those losses come from a Congressional-mandated retiree health benefit; another billion dollars in operating losses due to declines in First-Class mail.

Postal Service chiefs have lobbied Congress for months to pass a bill eliminating Saturday mail service and reduce annual health payments.  Legislation is stalled.
