Interesting the partisan spin put on a dozen Republicans voting to increase funding to the Postal Service.
Many times the Republicans have refused to vote for a bill in the Senate and thus blocked it.
So rather than blame the democrats for seeing a need to increase the budget of the USPS you really should look at the 12 who went along. it tells me either the 12 saw a real need to set Party Dogma aside and tend to the People's Business, (Arbo, what do you think of my using 'The People'?) or they are closet democrats as many super right wing in here claim.
The problem with these sort of agreements is they come when both sides refuse to compromise so formalized 'rules' have to be made to get anything done.
Problem with these formalized rules is like battle plans, they collapse at the very first contact with reality.
Rather than have two sides so entrenched in their party crap they refuse to be rational about where we are, how we REALLY got there, and what to do for the good of all.
Oh I ain't holding my breath, just marveling how some on the Right will go on and on about those damn Democrats, with barely a word about the Republicans who made it possible. Remember without 12 Republicans going along this NEVER would have happened...
