I beg to differ.

The US Congress gave the postal service $18 Billion in return for campaign contributions from the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), the primary union representing postal workers.

"Loser" is a common Millennial pejorative that they toss around at others, in order to reinforce their illusion that they are "winners".
