The USPS came rattling its tin mug throughout the Great Bailout months of 2009, yet the feds had already handed over all their bailout funds to GM as well as AIG.
So the Post Office is in problem. How can you aid? Well, you can pay definitely no interest to the largest expense in doing a postcard printing/post office mailing job: the postage.
