Michelle Obama Now Setting Stamp Policy for Post Office—Costs YOU $142,000

Michelle Obama has gone power hungry. As the wife of the president she thinks she has the obligation to tell your children what they are allowed to eat. Michelle has been a major proponent of keeping your child hostage in failed government schools, while she pays $40,000 a year, each, for her kids to get a great education—and to eat real food at lunch!

Now, she is running the Post Office from her White House perch. She is given veto power over a government agency on the stamps they issue?   The Post Office has run an $8 billion deficit for several years—they are closing facilities and not placing retirees as fast as possible. If a private firm, it would go the way of W.T. Grant—an asterisk in history. Now she is demanding they waste $142,000—really, who cares about the design of a stamp, as long as it is in good taste and not obscene?

“The US Postal Service is going to take another shot at developing stamps promoting Michelle Obama’s fitness campaign after White House officials vetoed the ones they came up with last year.

The stamps, costing $146,250 to print and worth more than $22 million if sold, were never distributed.

Now, officials at the money-losing agency are getting ready to try again.”

Unused ‘fitness’ stamps lie waiting in Postal Service warehouse

Michelle Obama’s fitness program had a bunch of stamps made, but they sit in a USPS storage facility.

The US Postal Service is going to take another shot at developing stamps promoting Michelle Obama’s fitness campaign after White House officials vetoed the ones they came up with last year.

The stamps, costing $146,250 to print and worth more than $22 million if sold, were never distributed.

Now, officials at the money-losing agency are getting ready to try again.

“We are continuing to develop plans regarding a fitness-themed stamp series,” USPS spokesman Mark Saunders told The Post.

Modal TriggerAbout 45 million of the stamps were left in a warehouse after the president’s fitness council expressed concerns that kids in the cartoon images weren’t wearing safety equipment.

Three of 15 stamps raised red flags: a kid doing a headstand, another taking a cannonball dive into a pool and a skateboarder without knee pads.

The White House’s concerns came to light when USPS marketing chief Nagisa Manabe asked the first lady to participate in a launch ceremony for the postage inspired by her “Let’s Move” initiatives, according to Linn’s Stamp News.

When officials on the president’s fitness council saw the designs they raised the safety concerns and the stamps were canceled.
