“The United States Postal Service is in deep financial trouble, and some say the only way to turn this around is to privatize it and operate it more like a business,” the survey says. “Others argue that maintaining the Postal Service as a public institution is the only way to make mail service accessible and affordable for everyone in the country. What do you think?”

The article includes a pro-privatization article by Chris Edwards of the CATO Institute and an anti-privatization article written by Katherine McFate, a member of A Grand Alliance to Save Our Public Postal Service.
