I don't see what's wrong with looking at changing the deal, as long as it's done in a legal manner.
USPS has been running at a loss for more than a decade. Amazon pays no federal income tax due to the same tax benefits that Trump put in place.
I see nothing wrong with him asking for more from Amazon. And this is coming from a lifelong conservative.
Life long conservative my butt! Your post is full of contradiction and false info. And before we continue, I’m an Ind that did NOT vote for him.
1. You say they don’t pay taxes due to Trump. I didn’t know he’s been in office for decades! Amazon is just like ANY other business, taking advantage of tax benefits (write offs such as depreciations that each of us have access to if running a business) and loop holes put in place by BOTH parties.
2. They DO pay taxes, both income and B&O taxes at state and federal levels. Why don’t you do some damn research instead of drinking the kewl-aid!
3. USPS authorities said they ACTUALLY DO make money off Amazon, unlike other companies they deliver for (junk mail senders for example). So to raise money on a company they make money from already when there are others they don’t, makes you sound like you live in Seattle and are one of the Socialist Sawant followers.
I’m so tired of people just spewing info they hear from the cubicle next to them or such without actually educating themselves.
