POST OFFICE PRIVATIZATION = ANOTHER GOP SCAM FOR $35 PER LETTER DELIVERY

UPDATE: POST OFFICE DOES BANKING FOR MAIN STREET

USPS = BANK Partner with PUBLIC to make a critical difference for millions of Americans WITH NO BANKING OPTIONS

PO BANKING =  68 million Americans = 25% of American Households

25% of Americans have no checking or savings account

PO BANKING = $89 Billion on interest and fees on payday loans and check cashing

PO BANKING =  Avg $2,412 Interest/Household = 10% of Annual Income = same as FOOD

10% of income on INTEREST = More than a Month of Income on INTEREST

INTEREST = TRAPS the poor at the bottom of the economic ladder.

Remarkable report on the USPS offering basic banking services

PO BANKING = bill paying, check cashing, small loans to its customers.

USPS = AVOID sky-high interest rates and tricks and traps in the loan’s fine print.

Michael Barr, assistant secretary of the Treasury and law professor at University of Michigan = Pushed USPS Banking

FDIC Chair Sheila Bair = commonsense rules to protect consumers and ensure that payday lenders are held accountable.

Postal Service offering basic banking services = bill paying, check cashing and small dollar loans = Affordable financial services for underserved families

USPS = Shore up its own financial footing like MANY OTHER COUNTRIES

The report = worth reading David Dayen’s article in the New Republic

Post Office Become a Bank: Obama can save USPS and ding check-cashing joints

Postal Service = 5OO,OOO PEOPLE = an issue WARREN believes in spending a lot of time working on to SAVE FAMILIES FUTURES.”
