  1. oh please…..bath house barry and the mooch played golf and traveled all over the world on Air Force 1 that costs 35,000 dollars an hour to operate with JP-4 jet fuel, pilots, secret service, flightservice staff etc. the mooch had her mother live in the white house for 8 years on the taxpayers dime……mooch even took the kids, grandma, and 15 freinds on a trip to Communist Red China that cost us $86 million in taxpayer money for one trip. bath house barry should have just stayed at Mans Country Gay Bathhouse in Chicago and just played through the glory hole!

  2. You right people that cry about waste don’t say a word about how much has been spent on President Dump’s weekend trips to Fl., or the 300,000 that was spent on Secret Service cost’s when the President’s children went to Whistler, B.C. for a ski trip. The President is so wise in making America great again, while burning through tax dollars. How much has been spent on the endless wars, how much will be wasted on the wars in the future?

  3. so true! it is all about cash flow and float. insurance companies take in your cash, hold it until they have to pay out a claim, that money sitting around gaining interest and investment is called float. problem is the post office is not an insurance company and its float is now becoming debt. not good for a service business. not good for the post office and not good for the dumb people who run it.

  4. try and follow along…..they brought in 69 Billion in revenue but they spent 76 Billion. it is called deficit spending operation. you can do this for quite some time, the problem is the spread will keep growing wider (decline in letter mail, and competition from package delivery, remember at one time they had 100% of express mail-now only 5%) 7 Billion spread is one thing…….when it becomes 30. 40, 50 Billion, then look out below. about 10 years should cook this postal goose! mismanagement is also adding to the problem of decline by cutting workers, which destroys service, which turns customers off, which causes an additional drop in revenue. as President Trump said….they are dumb!
