I have a question for you about how the USPS and Congress interact. I have seen many articles saying that a major (but not sole) reason why the USPS is running a deficit is because of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, which mandates that the USPS spends billions on future benefits for workers who are not even born yet, and that the USPS is the only organization that has to do something like this. Is this accurate, and would removing this requirement substantially help the USPS?
