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.1 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.
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.
