Why didn't he mention that the majority of items (and weight) delivered by the USPS is junkmail? Just subsidize the delivery of rural packages and let the USPS die already.

Hey John - I know you like poking fun at New Zealand. But how about doing a story comparing NZ's COVID-19 response to Trump's? In a few weeks we will we be at Alert Level 1, i.e. normal domestic economic activity. All businesses operating and only border restrictions in place. We will also have zero new cases, zero active cases and zero new deaths. From a population of 5 million we will have had about 1500 cases and 22 deaths. On a per head of population basis that is the equivalent of 98,400 cases in the USA with 1,440 deaths. From first case to elimination - 4 months. Beat that Trump!

If you live in NYC you know NYC postal services are pretty close to garbage here -- especially the customer services. And I'm not exaggerating. It's like these workers have zero professionalism in their bones. I dare you, Google map USPS in NYC and look at the ratings.

Having seen what USPS charges to send packages to Canada, the concept of paying 4x that is ludicrous. USPS has also messed up delivering packages to me multiple times, apparently reading my country as a state. That being said, the service they are providing is extremely essential to America and they should be bailed out - especially now. And maybe giving them the chance to adjust prices and have the time and funds to improve would better both their service and their prices both across America and into international orders. So I guess my comment boils down to "I can see Mr. Oliver's point", and "please just keep your mouth shut for once, Trump"?

Another thing that USPS does is allowing people in rural areas to vote. In Canada, Canadian CONservatives tried to privatize Canada Post. Then they realized that they will lose the next election in a landslide because rural Canadians have to pay extraordinary amounts to get packages delivered. The CONservatives in Canada instead lobbied to remove door-to-door delivery services. For example, you have to go to the local post office to get your mail. Thankfully, CONservatives lost the next election thanks to educated and intelligent voters. Did you know the Alberta Oil and Gas industry lobbied to remove or reduce taxes to government now complaints that they are given COVID-19 funds from the Canadian government with restrictions attached? Privatize the profits and socialize the costs!

Canada Post is a comparable service: it is a Crown corporation that is funded from its own operations, it services all addresses in Canada and is federally regulated. Yet, it has turned a profit in all but two or three years since its conversion from a federal department to a Crown corperation in the early 1980s. They make buckets of money on parcels and return all the profits to the federal government.

Looks like some companies lobbied our representatives to ensure zero competition from the US Postal Service... Or maybe not... But, my old grandpa used to say, just follow the money and you will find your answer... I am sure nothing will be done about that... :) BTW Mr. Oliver, will you dare to use your skills to also dig out the profits and charge comparison between the other delivery services and the US Postal Service... Maybe you can add some positive commentary to the community so we can get educated and elect other representatives that will also need to be lobbied after they threaten to pass a law to correct the one that has the US Postal service begging for money, that "Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act" looks like it was drafted to push the service down... maybe even eliminate it... so competitive, well run companies that deliver stuff can make a much more efficient use of their price structures to deliver the items... what a nice deal they got... you invest in lobbying and you get your investment back thousands of times over... but I doubt you will waste your valuable non criticizing time on such a low and unimportant subject :)

One of the other money-loss things is that even as a government entity, the USPS can be issued fines with OSHA. This is because UPS and Fedex complained to congress in that USPS was the “same” business as them and it wasn’t fair.

While this is an America problem, here in Canada I would like to help out and get some of your awesome stamps. Sadly (or maybe SAD! I'm not quite sure) I can't get the stamps delivered to me because the good ol' US of A postal service doesn't have an option to make it available here (or anywhere else for that matter, which maybe part of MAGA but I personally think America is better when it is a part of the rest of the world.) Is there anyway I can get around this? I would donate directly if I have to, even if that means I don't get the stamps, and I can't believe I'm saying that because I definitely want one of those ChiiJohn stamps! In closing please let me know if I can help with this obvious problem, maybe mostly because of Trump's desire to lash out at any opposition, to help with such a vital service that America provides

When I worked CS for Canada Post, our level of humour -- specifically for those not in management -- was at "so who's gonna kill themselves today?" Oh shit, I didn't know that USPS was the US equivalent to a crown corporation. In that case, why is their management so shit and not follow the international postage rules? I don't blame their front line workers, its their management, and investigative teams that I blame for their ineptitude. Aww man... I am very tempted to buy some of those stamps

My international parcel got delayed because it's still stuck in New York state due to coronavirus regulations. This means that it's awaiting to get a green light from the Dutch border control for delivery but because they cannot give a green light with the current situation (New York being affected hardest by the pandemic) the package has probably been sitting in a sorting facility for about a month and a half now. The place I bought it from, already put it under insurrance because they felt the best course of action was to just refund me and if it does arrive at least I got a big discount on it so I got nothing to complain. I get it, but it's frustrating and affecting other businesses that rely on USPS as well.

Another thing only the USPS is allowed to do: transport cremated remains. Imagine if your family lives on the other side of the country. You can't use UPS nor FedEx; it has to go through priority mail. We deserve to have a proper final rest, and this would complicate things even further.

It's mildly ridiculous that the government, a group that does a MASSIVE amount of communicating via the mail, would actually put the postal service in a position where it might legitimately go bankrupt and end up having to shut down.... Then again, it's right on par with the rest of the shit the government is letting fall apart. Just look at the condition of the roadways and bridges across the country, it's basically the same situation...

Honestly, if the USPS just suggest that they'll put up signs saying that "President Trump recommends we raise prices and so prices are raised" on all their fronts if they don't get their bailout, I'm sure Trump will fold faster than he could wear a mask.

I can certainly sympathise with people giving the USPS a hard time and I'm experiencing first-hand how the COVID crisis has impacted their service even more. I ordered a t-shirt from a store in Chicago and it's taken 3 weeks for it to travel just 23 miles from Bucktown to the USPS international sorting centre at O'Hare Airport. So much for getting my birthday present on time...
