LUFKIN-- The U.S. Postal Service is losing $21 million a day.  Now, they are looking at ways to cut back on money by doing 90-day studies across the nation.

If they feel they need to cut back on money in East Texas after the study is done, they have an idea for outgoing mail from Lufkin.

One spokesman says, "Lufkin mail will be delivered to Tyler, then it will be processed at automated sorters at Tyler and transported back to Lufkin."

The Lufkin Processing and Distribution Site could close one part down.  As a result, employees and mail would be shifted around. U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert says he got a letter in the mail from the U.S. Postal Service.  It stated it would be "fiscally irresponsible" not to consolidate.

Gohmert says, "It seemed to me the study would be irrelevant because they dictated the results before the study was even done."  He says they shouldn't make a decision before looking at the results of the study.  Gohmert says, "this is the kind of wrong-headed thinking that I believe has gotten the Postal Service in the problem they are in."

someone higher up need to look at the way the burkburnett, texas postmaster, Bruce is conducting his business. He comes and goes as he see fit. He takes all of his time off. Most of his personal has not had a day off in 6 month or more. He really sucks at being a postmaster. All he thinks about is his time off and how he can screw the people that has to work for him.

Better get used to it Congressman Gohmert, government studies with predetermined outcomes are as old as the EPA, as large as Global Warming and as frequent as the tobacco bans. Tread lightly on this one because you won't find much sympathy for government workers losing their jobs when the private sector is under a full scale attack from the Socialist in Chief. The eyes of the Texas Tea Party are upon you. District 1 needs a fiscal conservative voice to be heard in Washington DC.
