According to an article in the Washington Post, President Obama fielded a question about his health care plan competing with private industry companies. In it he made the comparison of how well USPS functions while Fed Ex and UPS also deliver mail as private companies.
Um....wasn't there just an announcement that 1,000 post offices were going to be closed across the United States? Is this the same government funded USPS that keeps raising its price of mail because it can't cover costs?
I might have this wrong, and I'm not a political expert, but as your average working citizen, this seems like a bad analogy to support his health care proposals.
