Those of you who want the Postal Service to die a quick death might be disappointed after all. Seems the government does not approve of their plan to kill Saturday service:

The Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan investigative arm of Congress, said in a legal opinion that the post office did not have the authority to make the change without Congressional approval, based on a spending measure passed by Congress last year.

The opinion was issued on the same day the House sent the president a spending measure that also required the post office to maintain Saturday delivery. That measure keeps the government operating through Sept. 30.

Of course, if Congress really wants the Postal Service to keep up with their delivery, they could just retract the unreasonable Congressional mandate that insists the USPS pre-fund health benefits for retirees.
