Employees who are insulted by these payments should take a stand refuse to accept them.

Many moons ago the corporations were being attacked for the high salaries of CEOs saying that the compensation wasn't deserved. The answer was to move more compensation to stock options which actually increased the average salary. Smart move by the corporations because the compensation did not require a cash outlay. Many CEOs got stock options at a very low option price after the sever decline in the market just before Obama took office. When the market recovered the CEOs reaped a large reward.

It is only a few bucks a month for the consumer, not enough to warrant a tax break to corporations, so says Mostie and Dan.

As many here know, Jamie Dimon (CEO of JP Morgan) is a Democrat. He's also very much on board with the corporate tax cuts and predicts a booming economy in the long term, and explains why. He even sees a 4% GDP!

Were it not for those payments, USPS would have shown a surplus in 11 of the last 13 years.
So you mean they asked the USPS to ensure the money required to deliver on promised healthcare benefits would actually be there in the future when needed?

What criminals.

Sounds like they were trying to avoid a crisis that many cities and states face on their pension and healthcare benefits in the future (not to mention medicare, medicaid, and SS).

Some here talk conservative / populist to try to muck up what is really going on. People who have worked 40 years have Mil/Aero stocks and are doing very good with President Donald J. Trump, we have 401K's that are not too bad either. Some others invested everything they have trying to do something on their own so more Obama policy, shit no! You want that wall President Trump, build it because we got your 6.
