Tell Congress: Stop Trump’s attack on the USPS
The petition to Congress reads:
"Pass the The Delivering for America Act, which would prohibit the Postal Service from implementing any changes to the operations or level of service it had in place on January 1, 2020, until the COVID-19 pandemic has ended."
Following nationwide calls for Democrats in Congress to save the United States Postal Service from Trump’s attacks, House Democrats announced plans on Sunday to do just that.
First, they called on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to testify under oath one week from today, on August 24. Then, Speaker Pelosi announced Sunday night that the House would be returning to Washington this Saturday for an emergency vote on the Delivering for America Act, which would put an immediate stop to Trump's attempts to sabotage USPS.
Now it’s on us to continue building support for saving the USPS in advance of Saturday's big vote.
Tell Congress: Pass the Delivering for America Act and save the United States Postal Service.
The Delivering for America Act is a common-sense bill introduced just last week by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY). It specifies that during the COVID-19 pandemic, “the United States Postal Service may not implement or approve any change to the operations or the level of service provided by the Postal Service from those in effect on January 1, 2020, that would impede prompt, reliable, and efficient services.”
It specifically prohibits the USPS from doing things like blocking overtime pay for USPS employees, revising service standards, closing or consolidating facilities and making any other changes that would have the effect of delaying mail.
“Congress must protect the right of all eligible citizens to have their vote counted,” Rep. Maloney said when she introduced the Delivering for America Act. “A once-in-a-century pandemic is no time to enact changes that threaten service reliability and transparency,” she continued.
Add your name to our petition now if you agree that Congress should put a stop to Trump’s attacks on the USPS by passing the Delivering for America Act without delay.
