I agree with your article in “Baltimore Voices” in the December 7th issue of The Baltimore Guide. I can do without the Saturday delivery of bulk (read junk) mail from the U.S. Postal Service. I can also do without the large amount of junk mail received on Tuesdays. However, I understand congress controls much of the USPS practices.

What sacrifice is Congress making in order to improve the USPS efficiency and reduce costs? All I see in the plans to cut back on USPS services, are consumer services. In 2007, the Congressional Research Service prepared a report for Congress advising representatives that the “franking” privilege had cost taxpayers $113.4 million in current dollars from 1988 to 2007. House members spent more than $45 million in 2009 on taxpayer-funded mass mailings. Senate mailings are far fewer and represent only 13% of all mass congressional mailings from 2000 to 2007. However, the cost of Senate mailings averages about $4 million per year. So much of these congressional mass mailings are to brag to their recipients on what a wonderful service their representative is providing and to say “oh, and by the way, please elect me again”.

Also, why not increase the cost of junk mail? We certainly receive more junk mail then we do first class mail. This would not only serve to eliminate a large amount the junk mail we receive, and throw out, but also eliminate the fat cat lobbyists who prey on our susceptible congress people by providing, gifts, junkets and money.

Why should congress benefit when we must have our services cut?
