New Bill Focuses on Top Institution

New Bill Focuses on Top Institution

(NewsReady.com) – The House has not returned to work in full capacity, but its members are still busy behind the scenes. One notable example is the drafting of a bill to allocate funding to the United States Postal Service (USPS). This measure is mostly spearheaded by Democrat leaders like Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY).

This new bill is still being drafted by higher up Democrat officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Another part of the bill is aimed at providing as much as $500 billion in additional state and local aid. Bailing out the USPS might be the priority as Democrats look for bipartisan support of the funding bill, though that may not be likely.

As it stands now, the USPS is expected to go bankrupt this summer. Although some are quick to blame COVID-19, President Donald Trump sees it as mismanagement over the course of years. The postal service has consistently seen financial losses for over a decade. Republicans want to see the USPS adopt better business models. Clearly, their current game plan is failing. Democrats, on the other hand, want to keep funding the service, especially as they push for everyone to vote by mail in the 2020 elections.

  1. Aid to us postal service I agree to that as far as state n local they screwed them self’s and We The People as one of they should not take advantage of COVD as an excuse as to there short comings they screwed up they should dig deep in there pockets not ours better yet how about all those pocket liners like paloooooose with her 120 mil give some of it up as well as all her cohort’s as well, sounds good to me, not for nothing they have taken from our great country for years and now would be a good time to help, Oh I forgot they are still to busy lining there pockets What a bunch of pocket liners. What a bunch of back stab people they are f the people but not us.

  2. The USPS is a typical democrat institution, rather than being concerned about affirmative action hires not working up to potential their solution is to hire more people and spend more money, and the end result is more people in the USPS just sit around and not giving a days work for a days pay, and the unions are in partnership with the democrats in this.

  3. This has been a political football since it started. Congress can’t negotiate with their own people, so a bill that sucks has to be dragged into a good bill that people and congress wants. The other truth is, when the D’s want to punish the R’s, (which is always) they underfund a bill that makes sense, especially if it was introduced by a Republican. They both create themselves buffoons, thinking the voting public won’t pay attention.
    Times up R’s and D’s. EVERYBODY OUT OF THE POOL!!! YOU’RE FIRED~!

  4. While a post office bailout may or may not be a good idea, it is a terrible idea to tie it to CV-19 recovery. Congress needs to start creating stand alone bills that deal with single issues. Each bill should be no more than a few clearly written pages that any legislator can read and understand and cast an informed vote on. This multi-billion and trillion dollar stuff must end.

  5. I feel that USPS should only handle letters and large envelopes. All packages could be handed off to private carriers such as Ups, Fedex, etc.
    USPS should only operate M-F for letters only.
    7a-7p, no overnight workers.

  6. I have seen rate increases every year. It cost me about $10 bucks to sent a small package to colorado. USPS needs an overhaul from stem to stern starting now. The Dembells want to bail them out again and again and in addition, bail out all the democratic santuary states as well. Where is the money coming from? ITS BORROWED MONEY. Do you think our tax dollars can pay for this? No way. But CHINA has the deep pockets that the DEEP STATE needs to fund all there programs. But China is going to want their pound of flesh. GET SMART PEOPLE.

    • I believe to go private will need a constitutional amendment, and to open the constitution now would invite the dismantling of America’s freedoms, the democatic socialists would shred it.

  7. Within an 10 mile radius, we have 4 post offices and this is a rural area. At least 2 of these should be closed. Also, I don’t see the need for mail service in rural areas 6 days of the week. A suggestion: Mon., Wed., & Fri. for one route, Tues., thurs., Sat., for the other route. Would save a lot of money!!

  8. I can’t even get postal delivery service to my home in Greenville, SC, and the PO Box that I rented in 1991 for $60.00 a year is now $148.00 a year. I wrote a letter to the Post Master General and requested delivery service, but the route (which is 50 yards away from their current delivery route) was declined and a reason was not given. Why would I want to give the United States Postal Service more money, when their attitude and customer service is so poor? I VOTE “NO” MORE MONEY TO AGENCIES THAT ARE MISMANAGED.

  9. SO THE ANSWER IS TO LET “FOR PROFIT” COMPANIES HANDLE THE POSTAL SERVICES?
    PLUS THE POSTAL WORKERS CARRY PACKAGES FOR OTHER “FOR PROFIT CARRIERS” IN THE RURAL AREAS! POSTAL HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DEPARTMENT OF THE GOV AND NOT MEANT TO RUN AS A PROFIT. THE GOV IN AN EFFORT TO APPEASE THEIR “FOR PROFIT” CRONIES MADE THE USPS PRE-FUND THEIR RETIREMENT 75YRS IN ADVANCE. THEY DID IT. AND NOW THE CORPORATIONS ARE STILL TRYING TO DESTROY THEM.

    • Neither was it meant to lose money and beg for more taxpayer bailouts. Give the Government a business and they will be sure to screw it up! We need new blood in congress. Too much infighting and self serving attitudes.

  10. USPS is in direct competition with UPS and FedEx but charges much lower rates that puts them constantly in the red. They have a much better infrastructure than UPS and FedEX and could be competitive and profitable by charging the same or slightly higher prices. So raise the prices and the people will pay because they will no longer have the cheap delivery source the USPS provides now t a huge lost.

  11. WE NEED OUR POST OFFICES AND POSTAL WORKERS AND CARRIERS! THEY ARE FAR MORE ESSENTIAL THAN MOST POLITICIANS! I HAD TO SENT A LETTER BY FEDX RECENTLY. WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. I RESENT HAVING PEOPLE MAKING MONEY ON MY MAIL SERVICE.

    I THINK NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE TO LET THEM STAY ON THE JOB, I THINK WE SHOULD SUBSIDIZE THEM WHEN THEY NEED IT.

  12. As a former postal worker, I can insure that this institution has been loosing money for a long time, I worked their from 1959 thru 1973 and it wasn’t in the “red” back then and nothing has changed. Too much politics was involved back then and I assume nothing has change. A big part of the problems is that the public would never be willing to pay the real cost of what it takes to receive letters, and packages and the internet has also had an effect on the volume of letters sent over the years. Think about it. all you have to do is to get on the internet and write your message and off it goes and you don’t even worry about the cost and it does not take long for someone to receive it. But if you tried to get rid of the Postal Service, people would raise holly hell with their politicians.

  13. No bailout for postal service. Mismanaged for so long now they take advantage of virus stimulus. IN face, no more bailouts for anyone. Stop handouts and folks will go back to work.

  14. You keep throwin money at people who promptly piss it away, smart people say enough is enough! That applies to USPS, San Fran, Chicago, and the rest of the money pits.

  15. Trump has it right. NO amount of money can save a totally mismanaged institution like the post office. It needs a complete rebuild, from the top to the bottom. Any money we waste on the postal service is just going to be just as effective as if we had dumped it into the harbor and let the fish have it.
