Support your Postal Service

This post is a repost from the Americans for Democratic Action's News and Notes

Postal Reform

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is leading the fight to protect mail delivery and the public workers who touch each and every one of our homes.  Soon, the Senate will consider new postal legislation, and we’re asking you to contact your senator immediately to tell him/her that the 21st Century Postal Service Act (S. 1789) is unacceptable in its current form.

“The bill would force the Postal Service to close hundreds of mail processing centers, shut thousands of post offices, and cause massive delays in mail delivery,” said Cliff Guffey, President of the American Postal Workers Union. “By failing to give more substantial financial relief, the bill would weaken the Postal Service, kill jobs, and drive customers away.”  The Ed Shultz Show explained the forces attacking the Postal Service in this video.
