FILE - In this Sept. 6, 2011 file photo, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The U.S. Postal Service releases a financial update expected to show just under $10 billion in losses for the last year as a weak economy and increased use of the Internet drove down mail volume. Donahoe has warned that the postal service will default on payments owed to the federal government, including $5.5 billion due this Friday for retiree health benefits, and faces a shutdown next fall if Congress does not move swiftly and aggressively to fix the ailing agency�s long-term money problems.
