The last few days have seen two high-profile hearings on the fate of the U.S. Postal Service and a major, bipartisan House vote to save it.
Over the weekend, Speaker Pelosi called the House of Representatives back for a rare Saturday session to fund the USPS – and she delivered: The House passed a $25 billion bill that would save the USPS and prevent any damaging operational changes.
Now, this bipartisan bill moves to the Senate, where Republicans are facing immense pressure to do their part to save the USPS – yet they’re still refusing to take action.
We’re almost at the finish line – but we need to keep up public pressure to condemn Republicans and stand up for the USPS. Quickly, while the Senate is deciding the bill’s fate, we need to hear from you:
Do you support Speaker Pelosi’s push to save the Postal Service?
This crisis has been building for months, as postal workers warned that an underfunded USPS could damage a key part of America’s infrastructure and state Democrats sounded alarms about disruptions to our elections.
With depleted funding and gross mismanagement from a GOP megadonor-turned postmaster general, important deliveries and essential medication are already being delayed. And delays will only get worse if the USPS doesn’t get funding soon.
We can’t let Republicans get away with ignoring this problem – which is why we must condemn the GOP-controlled Senate for failing to take action to save the USPS.
