Davis Helps Postal Workers

From the AP: Senate action was welcomed by Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., who ushered the bill through the House. "Congress is not only helping move the Postal Service into the 21st Century, but we are addressing the structural, legal, and financial constraints that have brought the Postal Service toward a financial death spiral," said Davis, chairman of the House Government Reform Committee. "The health of the Postal Service is important to the entire economy." More than 9 million American jobs, $900 billion in commerce and 9 percent of the gross domestic product depend upon mail and package delivery.

Just imagine. An army of men in wool pants running through the neighborhood handing out pottery catalogs, door to door.

Do we expand the commerce clause to cover absolutely every facet of life into which government might [read: does] intrude? Govt exists to uniquely provide national defense, foreign relations, stable money, impartial federal courts and little else. If you haven't seen the chapter about UPS in Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat take a look. UPS, FedEx and others can do this. This isn't a proper function of govt and Davis is doing us no favor subsidizing it.
