The U. S. Postal Service has always been a service to the people by the United States government. Cutting delivery days attacks the service idea. In the past, when it was the United States Post Office Department, the entire cost of running it was from tax payer dollars. When the corporation of the U.S. Postal Service was formed in 1970, government funding was greatly reduced and it was self-supporting. Maybe if the funding situation is critical, tax payers should again fund it. This is the government's method of reaching all of the people in the nation. It is the lifeblood of national communication. Please establish a means to continue the 6 day delivery program.
