The USPS and Democrats Want Taxpayers To Rescue USPS Retirees

(3 Sept 2016) The USPS, an independent agency of the U.S. government, has not received taxpayer dollars since the early 1980s, except for subsidies associated with overseas and disabled voters. The USPS has lost more than $40 billion since 2010, including more than $3 billion in the first 9 months of this fiscal year. It owes tens of billions of dollars for Treasury loans and payments to the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). Democrats want to eliminate the pre-funding requirement for benefits and pensions, increasing the risk the USPS will request taxpayers to fund these obligations. Federal law requires private companies to fully fund their pensions, but not retiree health benefits. The USPS has over 600,000 employees and millions of retirees. Congress required funding of their retiree health benefits because the office that manages federal retiree benefits argued the entire federal health benefit fund would otherwise be at risk.

The annual growth was only 1.1% for the Sept-Nov 2015 period. Bay Area leisure and hospitality job growth also slumped to a 5-year low after San Francisco and Oakland adopted the highest city minimum wage in the country ($12.25 an hour) in the spring of 2015. After rising close to 5% a year, leisure and hospitality industry hiring slowed to just 2.2% in the Sept-Nov 2015 period compared to a year earlier in the Bay Area. Meanwhile, employment rose 4.9% compared to a year earlier in the rest of California. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4 Jan 2016 Investor's Business Daily)

(25 Aug 2016) In Sept. 2009, Czar Obama made the following statement about Obama Care: "My guiding principle is, and always has been, that consumers do better when there is choice and competition." In 2017, residents eligible for Obama Care in 1,121 counties will have only 1 or 2 insurance companies to choose from that sell individual policies. In 664 of those counties, there will be only 1 company, compared to 225 counties this year. There will be 5 states (Alabama, Alaska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wyoming) with only 1 company. South Carolina had 9 companies in 2013 and Oklahoma had 8. (Source: 23 Aug 2016 Daily Signal)
