Rand Paul claims USPS is not ‘redeemable,’ cannot be fixed ‘until you fix their labor problem’

Any lawmaker who endorses legislation that provides more money to the U.S. Postal Service “might as well just put it into a big pile on your front lawn and burn it,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told “Your World” Wednesday.

“There’s no way to give any money to the post office to make the post office redeemable,” Paul told host Neil Cavuto. “You cannot fix the post office unless you fix their labor problem.”

According to Paul, 80% of the USPS’ expenses come from labor.

“About 50% percent of UPS’ costs are labor and FedEx’s [costs] is about 38%,” he added. “You can’t run a business with 80% of your costs being labor … in the end, just giving money to the post office is giving money to an operation that lost $8 billion last year, so giving them $10 billion [means] it’ll be gone within a year’s time.

Your a Punk, Rand, and you just another Trump wanna be. Your term’s should be limited with no guaranteed retirement. I bet you have never worked an honest day your life and how idiots, like you, get voted into office is amazing to me. You must fill people with so much bulls*it is the only way. Hope your a*s gets voted out too.

We are always hiring maybe you should apply Rand

Been there 30 years

Walk a day in a letter carriers shoes. Guarantee you wont make it through a whole route !

I am a carrier. We do pay alot in labor and these companies depending on us and paying barely a thing. They need to be paying more shipping rates because more parcels more labor.
