Wait, what?

That’s right. $15.9 billion. Billion.

In September, Twitchy reported that the U.S. Postal Service was going to default on a mandatory retiree benefit payment to the tune of 5.9 billion. And the hits just keep coming. Twitter users react to this latest hit.

This Twitter user has some reorganization advice.

The current situation is clearly unsustainable. This is the government at work, people. Time to privatize?

Twitchy will monitor this situation and update with further developments.

Update: Twitter users are also none too pleased with U.S. Postal Service’s alleged service.
