Because we love her. And we love stamps and postal workers and getting packages.
And I assume you all emailed and called immediately.
If you didn’t, because you were flummoxed and didn’t know what to say, I suggest this:
I am asking for your support for the USPS. As you know, under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, Congress has for years forced the USPS to pre-fund 75 years’ worth of pensions for its employees, a requirement not made of any other public or private institution. That means that the Postal Service is footing the bill for employees it hasn’t even hired yet.
The USPS doesn’t actually receive money from the government, but still needs Congressional approval to make any changes to its structure. An analysis in July showed that the USPS, without its pension requirement, would have a $1.5 billion surplus.
Please support legislation to ease these restrictions and help bring financial viability back to our USPS. We need your help TODAY. Thousands of jobs, families and communities are counting on you.
Do it. It’s easy.
