    With both presidential candidates going on and on about creating good-paying middle-class jobs, it strikes me as unusual that no one from either party, nor the media, has ever mentioned anything about the thousand upon thousands of Post Office workers who are either losing their jobs altogether or being cut back to part-time workers with lower pay and little or no benefits. Aren’t these people the middle class that the politicians’ are supposedly so concerned about?

    I’m sure that if the subject was brought up at all, the Democrats would blame the Republicans and vice versa. But let’s remember this happening under President Obama’s watch. He can’t blame this one on George Bush.

    Why doesn’t anybody from either party want to talk about all these jobs that will be gone?
