US Postal Service wants 5-cent
increase for first-class stamps

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/11/2018 11:35:28 AM

Washington — The US Postal Service is seeking to increase the price of its first-class stamp by 5 cents to 55 cents to help stem its mounting red ink. If approved by regulators, the 10 percent increase to the cost of mailing a 1-ounce letter would be the biggest since 1991. The price of each additional ounce would go down, from 21 cents to 15 cents. The proposed increase would take effect in January. It comes as President Donald Trump has criticized the Postal Service for “losing a fortune” by not charging higher shipping rates for online retailers such as Amazon.com.

Comments:
US postal service makes special runs on Sundays, delivering packages for Amazon customers who just can´t wait to get their stuff, yet can´t keep above water on its lavish pension obligations. Solution? Hike the prices some more, stiffing the dwindling number of elderly people who still pay bills by paper checks.

This "elderly" person prefers surface mail and paper checks. I also prefer writing and sending actual cards to people.

The Post Office has been running in the red since the 1970s. Only after FedEx and UPS were created did anybody take notice because a monopoly does not care what customers think, especially a government monopoly. Now they are a dinosaur trying to compete in a modern world and the rate of inefficiency is increasing. I can´t remember the last time I used a stamp.

Actually there will be no increase in the cost of postage- the added 5 cents is to cover storage

They are not a monopoly anymore. Raising the price of stamps will just drive more people to use electronic payment and email (and FedEx and UPS). And their service is already terrible.
Is there ever a time when there is no line at the post office? Surly clerks, long lines, high costs. The USPS is a a preview of government-run health care.

Why not convert all of your local postal trucks into electric, which will save you on the spikes in gasoline prices, AND you´d be helping the environment at the same time.

You can install a charging station at each postal location too, and charge people if they too need to charge their electric vehicles.

Install solar panels on every post office too, some will be able to use that energy more than other, but again, would be helping to reduce your costs by using alternative energy.

How about stop allowing advertisers to deluge us with junk mail (as bulk mail)for pennies on the dollar?! Insist that ALL mail be sent first class. They´d either up their revenues astronomically, or have a LOT less stuff to deliver. Oh...I see the problem. LOL

O.K.None taken. Also ,though some are really bad like cartoon characters, I like the different stamps and what they reflect....reprints of the old biplane air mail stamp, Ronald Reagan stamp, religious Christmas stamps ( I´m Jewish)and my personal favorite, a stamp that commemorated the Stamp Act of 1765.

Not like the other folks are any cheaper. I needed to do an overnight mail letter yesterday and decided to go with UPS. Cost $51 for 3 pm next day delivery.

Just found that USPS rate for 12 noon next day delivery was $24.70 or $24.95.

Actually what we call "junk mail" or 3rd class mail, does more than pay for itself. 3rd Class mailers are required to pre-sort and take other steps so that carriers simply pick up their bundles and go. I know because I used to use 3rd class mailings in my business. Some of the big costs to the USPS in mailing are 2nd Class material which includes subscription newspapers and magazines.

As the dollar steadily shrinks, the labor and fuel cost of delivering a letter does not.

For those who weren´t there, a brand new full sized Chevy automobile could be purchased for $2500 in 1965. A VW bug was $1900. So, the cost of a car is up by a factor of 10, or greater. Gasoline to fuel that car cost about 23 cents per gallon, about 19.9 cents at the cheap stations. Also, more than a ten times cost increase for fuel. (Cali was over $4 at many stations last week when I visited).

A first class stamp cost 5 cents in 1965. Ten times that is 50 cents. So, postage is pretty much keeping up with inflation.

Raise it to $1.00- get it over with. Let the Postal Workers all get every thing they want. Watch the Democrats howl.

"Trump can´t give the Postal Workers everything they want! How can we keep them on our hook if they get what they want from Trump?"

Yep- I´d gladly pay it if the Democrats were to get a big pie in their face! Besides- What´s a lousy 52 cents worth these days? I already pay $125.00 for Amazon Prime and it is the best money I ever spent. I dropped Commie DemocRat infested Netflix, HBO, Showtime, NFL Network and Google. Boy what a deal!

My Father-in-Law died in April. We filed a mail forwarding form so that we could pay his final bills and notify unknown friends of his passing. He received 3-6 pieces of mail daily asking for contributions to political organizations and charities at his old address. Our wonderful post office (Sarc/Off) notified all these organizations of his new address so now they are addressed to him at our address. Coming back from vacation, we had a shopping bag full of these requests for money. What´s wrong with this picture. "Return to Sender" does not work for reduced rate mailings, only first class.

I will gladly pay the 5 cent increase if they lower the cost of renting a post office box. It keeps going up. You would think I am saving them the cost of delivering the mail.

Why not fire the post master general or the committee over him? No CEO in any other business would be allowed to keep their job with a loss every year.

You would think they would be happy to print more stamps for collectors. A few years back, I wrote and asked why they wouldn´t reissue the Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary stamps (printed before Celebrations). An AA employee assured me they never had such stamps.

Sell off the Zip Codes to the private sector. Of course, you would have to have it somewhat regulated such as Government checks arriving on the first, but direct deposit takes care of that. No more taxpayer expense and a better run system. No more horse and buggy in a Jetson century.

Elias Guarcas, 30, was charged with first-degree robbery and fourth-degree weapons possession after the alleged robbery and ensuing scuffle, which occurred shortly after 6:30 a.m. at a bus stop on Palisade Avenue.

A Florida mother says she received an apology from Kirby-Smith Middle School officials after an employee told her son to turn a GOP elephant shirt inside out. “Spirit Week” at the Jacksonville school recently inspired one student to show off his conservative credentials, but the outfit didn’t sit well with a staff member. The family, who spoke to local reporters on condition of anonymity, said the shirt was described as a possible dress code violation. “It was Nerd Day, so he wanted to be a Republican nerd,” the student’s mother said Oct. 12.

President Trump’s tour Monday of devastation wrought by Hurricane Michael took him close to Florida’s Tyndall Air Force Base, where more than a dozen F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets were damaged after being left in the path of the powerful storm. The pricey fighter jets — some possibly damaged beyond repair — were caught in the widespread destruction that took at least 18 lives, flattened homes, downed trees and buckled roads from Florida to Virginia. (Snip) The decision to leave roughly $7.5 billion in aircraft in the path of a hurricane raised eyebrows, including among defense analysts who say the

Officials escorting Yaqub Ahmed on a flight from Heathrow to Turkey were forced to abandon his deportation when around a dozen holidaymakers who felt sorry for him angrily intervened shortly before take-off. At one stage during the astonishing episode, filmed on mobile phones, one traveller complained: ‘They’re separating him from his family’, while others chanted ‘take him off the plane’.

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority “Native American” to get ahead in her career. Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president. In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American.

Nearly everybody loves music. In fact, music can often bridge the gaps between people when nothing else can. And there are few things more fun than seeing people react to hit songs. There’s definitely no formula to what constitutes a hit song, although some songs were natural hits from the first time they made their way on the radio – think about songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” or “Irreplaceable.” Other tunes become smashes inexplicably. But there’s a whole different category of hits: overrated songs. Some singles have no business being popular or well-loved, and

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) launched a bizarre Twitter rant late Monday afternoon following the disastrous rollout of DNA results that further debunked her decades-long claim to American Indian ancestry. Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself. In her first tweet, and without any evidence, Warren made the outlandish claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.” The truth is that all Trump has ever done is ridicule her false claims about being Cherokee. “We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows “strong evidence” she has Native-American heritage, rebutting President Donald Trump’s ridicule of her as “fake Pocahontas” while she signals a possible 2020 presidential run. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native-American ancestry. “When I decided to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family’s Native American heritage would come

It´s a troubling fact that puts our nation´s future in peril. The data come from Judicial Watch´s Election Integrity Project.

On Oct. 14, CBS’s “60 Minutes” aired an interview with President Donald Trump — rare for its status as having appeared outside of Fox News or conservative media. Appearing the same weekend as First Lady Melania Trump’s appearance on “20/20,” this would seem to represent a new level of media blitzing on the part of an administration that’s already seen its head get plenty of free promotion during rallies broadcast on cable news. And, like Melania Trump’s utterly-on-message, relentlessly forward-moving TV interview, the President’s interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief

WASHINGTON - Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, ridiculed by U.S. President Donald Trump as “Pocahontas” for claiming Native American heritage, hit back on Monday with DNA evidence she said supported her assertion, a possible preview of a bare-knuckles presidential campaign in 2020. The Massachusetts lawmaker, known as a liberal firebrand in her party, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native American ancestry. “When I decided to run for

On Monday a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against President Trump. Stormy filed a defamation suit against President Trump after he mocked her over a sketch of the man who allegedly threatened her–the man in the sketch looked eerily like her ex-husband. The U.S. District Judge dismissed the case on grounds Trump’s tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole,” not defamatory as Stormy Daniels alleged. The federal judge also ordered Stormy to pay Trump’s legal fees! On Tuesday morning President Trump tweeted out a warning to “horseface” Stormy Daniels and her “third rate lawyer” Michael Avenatti.

Leftist luminaries, who weren´t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they´ve now, apparently, resorted to "reforming" the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives. NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the "balance of power" the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size."Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement
