Saying it was tired of waiting for Congress to take action, the U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday announced it plans to stop delivery and collecting of letters on Saturdays effective Aug. 5. But packages will continue to be delivered.
The postal service said the move would save $2 billion a year, according to CNN.
"It's a responsible decision. It makes common sense," said Patrick Donahoe, postmaster general and CEO of the postal service.
