1* How do you rate the performance of the United States postal service….excellent, good, fair or poor?


2* The United States Postal Service now delivers mail six days a week but is hoping to cut back to five days a week as a way to reduce its budget losses. Do you favor or oppose the Postal Service’s plan to cut mail delivery to five days a week?


3* Okay, Postmaster Patrick Donahoe said that in 15 years the post office will have to reduce mail delivery to three days per week.  How likely is it that mail delivery will be reduced to 3 days a week in 15 years?


4* Under current law, it is illegal for any private company to offer first class mail service and compete with the U.S. postal service. Should private companies be allowed to deliver first class mail?

5* To reduce the federal budget deficit should the United States government consider selling the Postal Service to a private company like UPS or Federal Express?
