An interesting quote from Jack Potter, where he spoke to the National PCC
“The law that birthed the modern Post Office 39 years ago didn’t come with all of the restrictions that are making it so hard to succeed today.
That law didn’t tell us what products we could and couldn’t offer.
That law didn’t tell us how much we could and couldn't charge, without reference to our universal service obligation.
That law didn't tell us that mail had to be delivered on six days rather than five.
That law didn't tell us we had to retain unnessary retail outlets.
That we had to divert billions of today’s operating dollars to fund benefits that may not be payable for another 10,25, 50 or 70 years.
Each of these limitations grew from other laws that modified our original operating charter.”
