This Holiday Season, Let’s Avoid the ‘Gift’ of a Postal Service Bailout

It is no secret that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has been hemorrhaging money for years, and 2021 is no different. Last week, the USPS posted a net loss of nearly $5 billion in fiscal year 2021. Any reasonable mind would agree that this trend is unacceptable and that serious, substantive changes need to be made to get the agency on a path of financial stability.


The Postal Service is Being Patently Ridiculous

In a strange turn of events, patent filings recently made public show that the United States Postal Service (USPS) is attempting to monopolize the use of blockchain technology in voting. Not only is it disheartening to see a federal entity attempting to run what amounts to a tech startup, but the patent itself is dangerously vague with the potential to threaten innovation in an emerging market. Intellectual property protections should never be used to prop up dying federal agencies or to establish new government monopolies.
