The fundamental problem is not Louis DeJoy. The problem — as I wrote about in Marker before the election — is that Congress wants the Postal Service to be a profitable business and essential government service at the same time. And it’s impossible for the Postal Service to be both.
What’s the solution? We have to pick one. If we want the USPS to be self-sustaining, then we have to reconcile ourselves to changes like the ones DeJoy is proposing. But if we want first-class mail to be delivered quickly everywhere for the same price, regardless of distance, and if we want post offices to stay open everywhere, then we should just abandon the idea that the USPS should be self-sufficient, and we can treat it like any other government agency.
