    I love it when I read about a governor cutting taxes. Nothing like letting people keep more of the money they earn.

    They would if they were allowed to. Maybe even cheaper.

    So you don't think we are going to learn plenty once people actually announce their candidacy?

    Do you think the cost of a letter represents an actual figure?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    no state income tax where I live so the only way we can really cut taxes here is to pressure government on the amount of sales tax they charge and property taxes.
    although they solved the property tax issue a few years back.

    we mostly vote on sales taxes.

    You forgot to include the Veterans Administration.

    Are the governors likely candidates for POTUS? Did those states just have massive tax cuts with no plan to balance the budget?

    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.
    It's partially because USPS can't increase rates without congressional approval. I believe that UPS and FedEx can charge whatever the market will bear, and it's a lot more than 49 per letter.
