The US Postal Service (USPS) is nearing default, and many of its workers are taking to the streets. Two days ago, postal workers staged nearly 500 rallies throughout the nation to protest newly-proposed Republican legislation—which, if passed, would gut services and cut up to 120,000 jobs.

This week on The Ed Show, the Nation‘s John Nichols took on the controversial bill, arguing that it could eventually lead to the privatization of mail service. This would have a significant detrimental effect on everything from local journalism to voting rights—and Obama is doing little to stop it.
