Senate passes Postal bailout bill

Lessee, the same senate that refuses to perform its duties under the constitution by passing a budget instead pays off its union supporters with a bailout bill....Are you kidding....really...?  The same senate that refuses to do any thing, finds time to pass a bill to pay off the union supporters that contribute to the majority party in the senate....really?
    The minority party proposes bills to deal with the fiscal crisis and get shut down by the senate majority leader Harry Reid (D) who then pass continuing resolutions rather than a budget so they can use slight of hands tricks to get pass the voters and taxpayers........Really?

In addition to giving the postal service billions of dollars, it would stop the closing of up to 250 mail processing centers and postpone decisions on closing individual post offices.

It would also put off the very controversial decision to end Saturday delivery.

It could end up being good news for places like Springfield, where several post offices, including Mason Square were on the chopping block. Even the Springfield mail processing center was facing an uncertain future.

The issue now goes to the House, which has yet to consider a separate bil
