53. Totally support what you are saying.

My business lost out big time when the Democrats' very first action in Congress after securing a majority in both houses (Circa 2007) was to raise postal rates for small businesses and also to allow for discounts to big businesses.

This hurt my business in two ways - number one: it costs more to do shipping.. But because it costs more to do shipping, our clients order the books we produce from Amazon. {As Amazon has that postal discount, Amazon can offer people "free shipping."

So then Amazon orders our books from us to re-sell to those folks who want them. And the terms are not as friendly to us as they would be if the book was ordered through us to begin with.


So not only does the US Postal Service get more money from us, our profit margin is also hacked away at by Amazon!

All thanks due to9 my elected Democratic Congressional critters!
