TYT - Elizabeth Warren proposes how to save US post office

TYT - Elizabeth Warren proposes how to save US post office

(7:30) For various reasons, the US Postal Service (USPS) is in dire financial straits. Democrat senator Elizabeth Warren is backing an idea to fix two problems at once, by allowing money-losing post offices to partner with banks to provide basic services for Americans without bank accounts. Cenk Uygur reports on the story.

First problem is that you're in the UK so you don't have voting rights so it doesn't make any difference for you.

Secondly, you called banks corrupt but I said people have other options such as pawn shops. Payday loan companies is another option. These payday loan companies are not banks but they earned 89 billion in 2012 in just interest and fees. So there are many other financial options people have and banks are definitely the more sensible option.

So you wouldn't be averse to the USPS setting themselves up as a "building society" to coin the UK term?

I'm not sure what a "building society" is exactly but it sounds like our credit unions. Regarding if I believe the USPS should be involved in that business, I say no. The USPS is a government owned entity and has no business getting into the private sector.

The more businesses owned by the government, the more you become socialist and then communist. I prefer to keep our society a capitalistic one. In fact, I believe we should privatize the USPS services and take it away from the government control. Unfortunately, that will probably never happen because it is the one business in our constitution where congress has control over routes and things like that.

If we allow the USPS to get into banking now, what would prevent them from selling groceries later? What about telephone services and cable/satellite services? Where do we draw that line? I draw it where they are now and should not get involved into anything but delivering the mail.

He provided some serious arguments and logic to support his view. Unable to face or counter that logic you hide behind some silly insults. A clear win - and not for you.

You have to love that rhetorical question he asks about "would it be all those contributions from ups and fedex to republicans that is influcencing this, hmmm?" Why doesn't he use "democrats" in the question? The record shows that UPS and Fedex both gave equally to both parties.

TYT is completely biased. They inject their opinions instead of just reporting the facts.

that's the whole point of TYT, putting their opinion on other people's articles and studies. Just like Bill O'reilly does with fabricated, false, right wing information, only they do it with studies, polls and other people's articles. If you want the original source all you have to do is to go to the youtube video and check the video description. here it is LINK . Stop trolling about.
