But let's pretend the USPS is tax payer funded. So what? What Lance does with his paycheck is his own responsibility. I am in the military. The US tax payer pays my salary. But once that money is paid to me it is no longer tax payer money. It is mine. I earned it. The government is not responsible for what I do with it. If I decide to go out and buy and use some illegal drugs would you consider that tax payer funded drug use?
Sigh.....the article says that the USPS sponsored bicycling team, which Armstrong was a member of, received tens of millions of taxpayer dollars.
So either the USPS provided the team with that money, or the government did, but either way, and I don't care which way, I want to know why a bicycling team gets taxpayer funding to the tune of tens of millions?

I thought it was strange that they found drugs in his system, THIS time. How many times have they checked this guy in the past and how many times has this come up in the past, only to have him test negative, and now all of the sudden he tests positive? Strange.
USPS is NOT tax payer funded.
People still seem to be missing that little point. Now, if we want to get upset about our tax dollars being used to sponsor this kind of stuff we still can. The U.S. Army, which IS tax payer supported, sponsors a NASCAR race team.
I hope I'm not committing some offense by posting on the OP topic, but I think stripping away his 7 wins - meaning taking it away from everyone on every one of those 7 teams too - really sucks.
