Congress Wants To Turn The US Postal Service... Into A Bank
It's news that seems ripped from the pages of The Onion. Or perhaps Atlas Shrugged.
But incredibly enough it's actually true: earlier this week, Congress proposed a new law authorizing the US Postal Service to provide banking and financial services.
It's called the "Providing Opportunities for Savings, Transactions, and Lending" Act, abbreviated as... wait for it...
the POSTAL Act.
