I simply cannot understand why ANYONE wants the GOVERnMENT to run ANYTHING.

In 2015, Amazon spent $11.5 billion on shipping, 46 percent of its total operating expenses that year.

The U.S. Postal Service lost almost $4 billion in 2018 even as package deliveries rose.

USPS reported operating revenue of $70.6 billion for fiscal year 2018, which ended on Sept. 30, as sales at its shipping and packages business rose 10 percent.

However, its net loss more than tripled to $3.9 billion from a loss of $1.2 billion in 2017, hurt by rising pay and benefits and higher transport costs, such as gas prices.

“The flawed business model imposed by law continues to be the root cause of our financial instability,” said Postmaster General Megan Brennan, adding that the Postal Service is pressing for reforms that would allow it to cut costs, increase revenue and compete more effectively.
