Romney is for making sure things aren't a drain on our federal budget. He understands Fema could be better served on states or private sector. UPS is profitable while postal service bleeds red. The federal government just isn't efficient.
UPS is not the Post Office. Two different business models. UPS delivers shipments of goods. They work very well in this model. They do not need to deliver personal mail to every mailbox in the US on a day to day basis.
The Post Office use to deliver personal mail and billing, In my house this is now done thru the web. So the Post Office is losing revenue. There probably is inefficiency but the Post Office did well for a long time.
Just remember if the states need to provide FEMA instead of the Federal government, then your local taxes will increase substantially. Enjoy.
So what your are saying is that UPS could not find a way to be profitable and delivery the mail every single day, yet you pointed out the post office did well for a long time. It cost a lot more to deliver a package every 1 to x miles, than to every house. The government is the inefficiencies you so kindly pointed out. Thanks for helping me make my point.
