Grant Garrett Posted over 1 year ago Debate: US Postal Service. I believe that the post office needs to close down its operations where residents will receive mail 3 days a week. They will have less people cover more routes but not show up to your house every single day. I can honestly say that only about once a week do I receive something important in the mail. Our government should not be providing $5 Billion Dollars a year to them. The market is signalling that the demand is not there, we need to let the free market work. Who knows, maybe we only need mail once a week?
