The Ed Show | February 07, 2013
>>> thanks for staying with us tonight on "the ed show." sarah palin . she called it real america . look at the 2012 election map. look at all that red that's there. that's real america , isn't it? that's republican territory, or what republicans like to call real america . that's where republicans are elected year after year. and it's the area that's going to be hit the hardest by the restructuring of the post office . a restructuring crisis created by the very republicans elected in real america . now, while many americans, you'll shrug off the postal service 's decision to suspend saturday service delivery , the consequences, my friends, could be devastating. not just that we're going to lose 225,000 jobs that are at stake, but the postal service has already started to close, or drastically reduce hours of operation at 13,000 rural offices across real america . many rural communities that are republican, that have less than reliable access to the internet depend on the post office to send mail to do business and are going to be faced with shorter hours at the post office , meaning business is going to get hurt. it's going to be less competitive. many people think that companies like fedex and ups, they'll just come in and fill the gaps. they are wrong. it's estimated that about 30% of fedex ground shipments are actually delivered by who? the united states postal service . why? because it's cheaper. for ups and fedex to make the postal service deliver to real america . you see, the post office is required by law to provide universal delivery, regardless of geography and regardless of whether or not they're going to make a profit. it's a big service for america . this is a rights issue. this is more not so much about convenience. this is about what you in real america voted for. tea party america .
