Rupugs DID something in THEIR lame-duck…bad!

"On December 20, 2006, right before lawmakers left for the holidays, Republicans in Congress forced through a bill that required the Postal Service to put into a savings account enough money to pay for all of its retired workers’ health benefits 75 years into the future. In other words, the Post Office is saving money right now to pay for the health benefits of people who haven't yet even been born! This is something so massively stupid and destructive that no other business or government agency on earth has ever had to do it or even considered doing it, and it’s why the Post Office has been in the red every year since the law was passed in 2006.
