Trump to privatize mail delivery

Save the Postal Service From Trump

Save the Postal Service & the Vote From Trump

We now need to save the United States Postal Service from elimination by Trump and the Republican’t Party. It is a globalist plan to destroy the last Constitutional Office still existing, destroy the last large union of government workers and even repress the mail in vote!

Voting is the foundation of our democracy. That’s why Republicans hate it. Democrats want to support democracy and public health and safety by legislating for universal voting by mail. Already a successful way to go as demonstrated in States like Washington.

Read these actionable posts from MoveOn, Bernie and Elizabeth to get involved in the solutions.

 

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

The U.S. Postal Service is once again under attack by Republicans who want to bankrupt the Postal Service and allow private equity firms and global corporations to privatize the service, dismantle the agency, and profit further off of the American people.

Private companies won’t deliver to certain remote areas because it’s not profitable to do so, but the Postal Service is obligated to serve all Americans regardless of where they live— and, right now, the Postal Service is delivering lifesaving medications and food, supporting voting by mail in primary states, and helping other services necessary for our nation to continue to operate.

Sign the petition demanding Congress and the Trump administration fully fund the United States Postal Service.

Congress and the White House must fully fund the United States Postal Service in the next stimulus bill.

The United States Postal Service is one of our government’s oldest and most reliable entities. And mail service has been a lifeline for many Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.

However, because of the pandemic, the agency could run out of cash by the end of September, if Congress fails to act.Democrats have been pressing for weeks to fully fund the Postal Service, but the Trump administration recently blocked a bipartisan attempt to fund the agency.2

For years, conservatives have tried to push mail service toward privatization. Either by setting highly prescriptive loan terms or by essentially forcing it into bankruptcy.

Sign the petition to save the United States Postal Service.

During the last privatization fight, Senator Bernie Sanders said, “If the goal of the Postal Service is to make as much money as possible, tens of millions of people, particularly low-income people and people in rural areas, will see a decline in or doing away with basic mail services.”3

Just a few days ago, Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted, “I’m calling on Congress to act swiftly to shore up USPS so that everyone can continue to receive essential medicines and supplies, and as many Americans as possible can vote from home.”4

Please join with us and demand that Congress and the White House fully fund the United States Postal Service in the next stimulus bill.

Add Your Name: Make sure every American can vote safely in a pandemic

Warren Democrats
Voting is the foundation of our democracy. That’s why Republicans hate it. Democrats want to support democracy and public health and safety by legislating for universal voting by mail. Already a successful way to go as demonstrated in States like Washington.

And no one should have to choose between
protecting their health and making their voice heard.

But with the coronavirus crisis making it dangerous to gather in public places, wait in long lines, and touch shared surfaces like voting machines, we need a plan to make sure Americans can vote safely in a pandemic.

That’s why today, I’m outlining simple steps that Congress needs to take in its next coronavirus relief package to protect the health and safety of America’s voters. Here are a few of them:

  • Universal vote by mail in every state

  • Online and same-day voter registration so that everyone can make their voice heard
  • At least 30 days of early voting and extended voting hours to enhance the safety of in-person voting
  • Guarantee that every poll worker is compensated — and receives hazard pay — for their work
  • Provide at least $4 billion for state and local governments to administer elections and to keep poll workers safe

There’s more, but it all comes down to this: During a pandemic, we need voters to stay safe, but not be silenced. And our leaders — from Congress to governors and state officials — need to act now to lay the groundwork for safe and secure elections in November.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be calling on governors, local officials, and the federal government to make sure every American can safely exercise their right to vote. Add your name to join the fight and get more updates on how you can take action.

We’ve already seen Republicans use the crisis to accelerate an undemocratic power grab and disenfranchise millions.

Last week, Donald Trump claimed that if we made it easier for more people to vote, “you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”

And he’s just the latest in a string of partisan power grabs. Right-wing politicians who’ve embraced efforts to make it harder for people to vote! How? By closing polling places, purging millions of voters from voting rolls, limiting early voting, and passing restrictive voter identification laws.

But in times of crisis, when people’s lives and livelihoods are on the line, it’s more important than ever that elected representatives are held accountable. There’s no room for partisanship when it comes to protecting the basic machinery of our democracy.

Elizabeth warren has plans for the issues that are important to you
We need to make sure every voter can safely make their voice heard, including by taking these steps:

    • Expand online voter registration so it’s an option in every state, extend voter registration deadlines as much as practicable, and let any eligible voter register on Election Day.
    • Make states provide at least 30 days of early voting to help reduce crowds and maintain access to safe, in-person voting.
    • Mail every registered voter a ballot and a postage-paid return envelope. That way, they can safely fill it out at home, send it back in, and participate in our democracy.
    • Ban states from purging voter rolls during this pandemic — unless a voter has come forward and said they want to be removed, or unless there’s objective evidence that their registration is out of date. And states must add voters’ names back to the rolls if they’ve already been purged.
    • Ensure equal access to the polls — regardless of race or ethnicity, language, tribal citizenship, or ability. That includes ensuring sufficient and safe polling places on Election Day, providing accessible ballot machines for people with disabilities, expanding voting hours, and allowing people to vote with a sworn statement of identity instead of an ID.
    • Provide no less than $4 billion in surge funding to states for election administration, compensate every poll worker (including providing hazard pay), and bolster election security.

By taking these steps — and more — we’ll ensure elections can proceed safely, securely, and on time.

Congress needs to act, but governors and state officials must do their part, too — and as a movement, we’ll be calling on them to do just that.

I’ll keep up the fight in Washington, but I can’t do it alone — we can only protect our democracy if we fight side by side.

Sign up now to say you’re in this fight.

Thanks for being a part of this,

Elizabeth
