Postal Worker Fired For Throwing Out Mail Related To Obamacare

The popular slogan of the United States Postal Service says, "neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Indeed, these workers are supposed to deliver, and not throw out mail, even if they find it offensive. The latter move, however, appears to be the choice embraced by one postal worker in Fresno, Calif.

As was reported by local Fox outlet KMPH-26, the mail carrier threw out mail that was related to the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as "Obamacare." The carrier, who has not been named in reports, was caught by local resident Jerry Dills, who said he noticed the worker tossing the material from his apartment at the Central Fresno apartment complex. And so far no motive for the move, political or otherwise, has been mentioned in reports. USPS employees, of course, are welcome to take advantage of the service's benefits package.

Dills, for his part, claimed he saw the postal worker tossing the Obamacare materials into the complex's dumpster, which he then took pictures of, as can be seen above. Dills then proceeded to report the incident to his local post office. The worker was promptly fired after he was questioned by the USPS.
