    You're dancing again Stinger.....er....Goob.


    Bottom line:

    If I have a one ounce letter I can send it through the USPS from LA to NY for
    (what is it now .44 cents)

    OR

    I can send it ground FedEx for $5.67 and it will arrive in 4 days.


    I bet the USPS gets it there within 4 days as well.

    See how efficient Government run services can be?

    Sorry Goob....just calling the shuffle where it is. You supported nothing. I supported it with actual business figures. But your mentor taught you well....shuffle off to buffalo.

    NEWS FLASH

    The CBO just sent a letter to the Ways and Means committee, which states the following:

    Overall, CBO estimates that enacting the proposed changes would lead to an average increase in premiums for Part D beneficiaries, above those under current law, of about 5 percent in 2011. That effect would rise over time and reach about 20 percent in 2019. Beyond the 10-year budget window, the premiums would increase slightly more until the doughnut hole was eliminated in 2022; beyond that point, enrollees’ premiums would grow along with the cost for covered drugs. As already noted, the proposed changes would also reduce beneficiaries’ average cost sharing and their average total drug spending. The net effect on drug spending would differ among beneficiaries depending on the amount of their purchases in a year.
    More bad news for seniors.

    I doubt anyone in the private sector would step in to fill the void at this point. In the internet age there is simply not sufficient demand for postal services for a company to make a profit at it. Its really a hold over from the industrial age.

    This has nothing to do with government mismanagement of the program, its just a symptom of out of control health care cost inflation.

    when and where did he say that? and it is my experience that the left is more likely to let us live as we please, while the right wants to "guide" us in the paths of righteousness....
