    Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...so let me get this straight, the USPS is broke, which is a federal service, but the government would much rather bail out airlines and banks, rather than bail out an actual essential business that provides services to literally everyone...huh?

    John Oliver has done more for America than the current president.

    I am a nurse and recently cared for a patient whose mail carrier noticed he was not collecting his mail, and called police for a welfare check. The mail carrier saved the man's life. He had fallen and lain unresponsive for a full week and had full-thickness wounds that he is healing from now.

    Funding this thing shouldn't even be in question. America is clearly psychotically obsessed with making a profit from even the most ridiculously basic and necessary services.

    When I was in postal training, I found out that every year countless Americans recover from having collapsed in their homes solely because of a mail carrier who happened to notice they hadn't checked their mail. USPS is a vital component of society-- and yes, there is still such a thing as society. We still care about each other, including the rural poor.

    You forgot to mention that stealing or opening someone's mail is a federal crime because it's a federal government agency. If it gets privatized the porch pirates won't go to federal prison and because they deliver medications and only they can deliver medications people who are of limited mobility would be screwed.

    "The postal service is a joke" - The US president about an essential national service, while suggesting price gouging to a degree where said service would become complete inaccessible.

    USPS: a suggestion for a side gig. Print out and sell "Save the Mail!" postcards where citizens can write in the back why they want/need their postal service! Imagine the face the congressfolk will make when they see that avalanche!

    Wrote my US Rep, Mike Turner and received this information: "On February 5, 2020, the House passed a bill I cosponsored that will strengthen the United States Postal Service by repealing the requirement that the Postal Service pre-fund the health benefits of its future retirees. The USPS Fairness Act (HR 2382) is a sensible first step toward ensuring the long-term financial stability of the Postal Service, and preserving its core mission of providing universal service to every American household and business." Not sure where it is in the Senate. Am waiting to hear from OHio Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown.

    I'm in Canada and even I see the value of the USPS. If I order anything from the US and they ship UPS I get hit with huge border fees every time but if a company ships USPS it's either much lower or nothing at all. I always tell companies to not ship UPS to me and only use USPS.

    As a Nurse - am I essential or sacrificial, barely registers as dark humor.

    Thank you Mr. Oliver! As an essential employee for the United States Postal Service we are very grateful for all the THANKS and support we are receiving from the public we serve every day. It is great that you have brought to light the issues that we are currently facing. The Postal Service will persevere. We have before, we will again, of that I am sure. I appreciate the gut busting humor. We’ve all needed a good laugh at our office. STAY SAFE AMERICA!
