Federal funds are federal funds. Period. It's money from taxpayers - regardless of the reason that it's being appropriated to the USPS.Originally Posted by jrtalon .
"0 â€” tax dollars received for operating the Postal Service"
Your $96million is the government reimbursing the Post Office for the free services the government mandated they provide to the blind, elections, and child support enforcement basically the government paying the Post Office like everyone else. The USPS doesn't take taxpayer money to operate and almost certainly the $96 million didn't have anything to do with paying Armstrong and his team.
As to the bolded part, USPS marketing funds are taken FROM THE SAME POT - right? So how can you distinguish what amount did or didn't go to support LA's drug caravan??
