Postal rates

Once again, people seem to be confused by the U.S. Postal Service needing to raise mailing prices.

Once again, people seem to be confused by the U.S. Postal Service needing to raise mailing prices.

For a while, the Post Office was sponsoring such events as the Olympics and throwing elaborate conventions. But the real problem remains the same, and the Post Office has no choice but to comply.

In case you haven’t figured it out, then just look at the postage paid by those who send you all of that junk mail. It is your Congress that sets these ridiculously low rates. And the Post Office is required to follow the law.

So, the next time that you have a gripe about all of that junk mail or the rate increases, just look to your local congressman.
