Congress wants to turn up the USPS into a bank!

5 posts in this topic

This is interesting. In past years, if you got a postal money order (which you can only get with cash) you could take it anywhere and get cash for it. Now you can only get cash for a postal money order when you go directly to the post office. If you take that money order to a bank, they will not cash it for you, but deposit it in your account with the same kind of holds/restrictions as regular checks. This is a fairly recent change. 

Imagine the post office as a bank ... they have everyone's home address, and they know what kinds of mail is delivered to these addresses.

I read awhile back that the post office, in the event of an emergency, will be the go to for the government for information on people's whereabouts. Everyone has an address, unless you are an insane homeless person who has no government benefits and they don't care about them, anyway.

The economy going down the tube...the postal service already $4billion down the tube every year, because they don't have a postmaster general who knows how much to charge for sending a package...and the junk mail would stop if it would cost them more instead of less....
