uspsWASHINGTON (CNN) — The U.S. Postal Service said Wednesday it will delay its plan to cut mail delivery to five days, saying “restrictive language” in Congress’ temporary government funding resolution prohibits the new schedule.

The plan was to start August 5.

The Postal Service said it will delay the plan “until legislation is passed that provides the Postal Service with the authority to implement a financially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule.”

    Thanks to email and online bill paying the only thing I ever get from the post office is advertisements. They could go to 3 days a week and most people wouldn't notice.

    This is your government at work folks. If they can't even get the mail right (and they've had 150+ years to try), don't expect much in the way of health care…
