Looking for a symbol of how decrepit, combustible, and gridlocked the federal government has become? Consider the U.S. Postal Service’s delivery vehicles. With more than 400 exploding and catching on fire in recent years, the busted, old, dangerous contraptions need to be replaced as soon as possible. Yet some environmental and union activists are willing to put that at risk for narrow political objectives. Furthermore, the U.S. Postal Service has ample financial resources and does not need a taxpayer grant if it wants all its new vehicles to be electric. Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in an Op-Ed in RealClearEnergy here.
