“Pass the Postal Service Reform Act (H.R. 3076/S. 1720) to save the USPS from the draconian retiree pre-funding mandate, which has given Postmaster General Louis DeJoy the excuse he was looking for to implement service cuts and undermine our Postal Service.”
Trump’s Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is still running the United States Postal Service, causing irreparable harm, intentionally slowing down the mail―undermining faith in the USPS.
But, even before DeJoy took over at the USPS, the postal service was under attack―constrained by an outrageous mandate from the George W. Bush administration that required the USPS to pre-fund 75 years of health benefits for postal workers. This includes pre-funding health benefits for future Postal Workers who haven’t even been born yet!
The mandate has unnecessarily crippled the USPS’s finances, placing a financial burden on the Postal Service that doesn’t exist for any other federal agency or private corporation. Lifting this burden is particularly urgent now, when the USPS is called upon to meet more home delivery needs, including COVID test kits and medications.
Thankfully, there’s something Congress can do. The Postal Service Reform Act has bipartisan support in the U.S. House and is just waiting for a vote. Add your name here! Join the Coalition on Human Needs and our national allies in calling on Congress to pass the Postal Service Reform Act and save the USPS!
