Forever stamps will cost more starting Sunday

If you use couriers to deliver emails, and tweets to deliver policy...

"I think the computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole, you know, age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what's going on."

...then you probably won't notice this little cost increase. Goes great with $500 average increase to home loans for a number of us.

Thank you, Mr. Precedent.

It might be called a "Forever" stamp, but not when it comes to the price of buying one.

The cost of mailing a one-ounce first-class letter will return to being 49 cents, up from 47 cents, where it had been since April.

1. It's still a bargain.

A letter by way of UPS is $14.50 at last count

2. Agree,I laugh at those RW idiots who want to abolish the USPS

So UPS and Fed Ex can deliver the mail. I've always told those knuckle draggers that you can ALREADY send a letter through them. IF you want to pay a fortune to do so.

3. I just greatly appreciate how Republicans...

never count all these increases on "the little people."

They are only concerned by the "burdens" carried by those who can most afford them.

I doubt if they have ever dug into their sofa looking for two more cents to mail that bill in before past due.

5. Does Meyer really understand a FOREVER stamp??

Duhhhhh.....right now I have about 40 forever stamps in a couple of books. She's acting like they are now worthless with the price increase. LOL...like others I mail very little. Those stamps will easily last me two years or maybe more.

But then...OH MY I'll have to pay a whopping two cents more per stamp. The USPS is still one of the best things we have in this Country--unless Trump cans them for his Corporate masters.

7. Yeah, it's chump change.

And that's what Republicans do.

Pass the costs onto the "chumps."

13. LOL...of all the MISERY Trump is going to cause....

paying another two cents for a stamp doesn't even register. I haven't looked but I'm sure this hike was in the works six months ago. Would we be griping if this increase happened on Clinton's watch??

15. The point is...

the Corrupt One just issued his first executive order to stop a reduction on mortgage fees that only apply to those who can least afford it.

You ever heard the phrase, "Nickel and dimed to death"?

Yeah, 2 cents more for millions, 10's of thousands less for a few. That's how you have revenue neutral tax breaks.

11. That's because 'forever' is suddenly seeming a lot longer.

16. Only 1458 days to go.

I think I may mark each day off so that I can have hope it will end.
