 The ailing U.S. Postal Service is reporting quarterly losses of $5.2 billion.

From April to June, losses were $2.1 billion more than during the same period in 2011.

The mail agency said it is being hurt significantly by mounting costs for future retiree health benefits. Those expenses made up $3.1 billion of the post office’s quarterly loss.

Remember this does not include the the additional $5.2 billion in pension prepayments that were due to the Treasury, but the USPS defaulted last week.  They will run out of cash to operate in a few months.  Get ready for the next great bailout.
