    since monopolies are illegal and we have anti-trust laws to prevent them then well you are incorrect.

    so please tell me why UPS, and FedEx still do very well for themselves and the USPS is in a hole so bad that they can't operate.

    The reasoning behind missing the payment is that tax cuts are a long term solution, not a short term solution. That means that there will have to be some sacrifice initially to see the results down the road. Tax cuts don't automagically create money, they take some time to help build the economy. This is why liberals just don't get the benefits of tax cuts - most liberals are short term oriented. If you don't see the results NOW, they didn't happen. I don't like the idea of missing that payment, as I'm sure Gov. Walker does as well, but I understand why it's necessary.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    They are not in the "hole". The USPS has been forced by Congress to prepay their pension fund 20 years in advance. UPS and FedEx would be bankrupt too if they were forced to do the same.

    yet congress won't fix it I wonder why. ol yea government nonsense. the USPS is in a hole because of government regulations nothing more.
    if it could operate with more efficiency and more autonomy then I am sure it wouldn't have the millions of dollar deficits that it does.

    again shows that government can't run things

    If I recall Bush did that, results were not positive.

    How about the Washington Post do a story about how the state governments are doing in all the 50 states rather than singling out one state who has a governor who may run for President? Most of the time no one cares what happens in Wisconsin, what is the agenda now?

    So you don't think that it's important to know about the leadership abilities, and successes and failures of candidates for president?

    That's why our military is so weak and ineffective no doubt. The same goes for SS, Medicare and the National Parks. All miserable failures.

    That's the norm for the federal government. It also happened under both Bush presidents, Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Nixon, etc.

    It's not normal for states to make huge tax cuts, and then to skip scheduled payments on debt, especially when the governor is trying to paint himself as a "fiscal conservative".

    Gotta love elections.
    Absolutely. And of course the conservative press will do the same.

    What's ashamed is that most of those voters who are considered "base" for either side, will never allow themselves to be exposed to the negative stuff about their favorite candidates, which probably explains why we keep electing idiots from both parties.
