Save our Public Postal Service

Save our Public Postal Service

The Postal Service could run out of money as early as June. Congress must provide urgent and ongoing financial support for the USPS during this public health and economic crisis.

Why is this important?

As most Americans shelter in place, postal workers are delivering people’s prescriptions, keeping small-enterprises in business and connecting families. The USPS has always been our emergency distribution system when our country is in crisis.

But, at this unprecedented time, that work is under threat. The Coronavirus shutdown is plummeting postal revenues while increasing costs. The Postal Service could run out of money as early as June.

Instead of shuttering USPS, we should be supporting the essential workers who deliver our mail, and expanding their reach, since they're the only delivery service mandated to serve all of us affordably. We can use their skilled workforce to deliver stimulus checks faster than the IRS can, and even offer bill paying, low-fee ATMs, and expanded remittances overseas

The loss of the USPS would shatter our response to the Coronavirus pandemic, hit already weakened businesses, and ravage communities. Our public Postal Service needs all American leaders - Democrats and Republicans alike - to provide urgent and ongoing financial support from the Federal Government during this public health and economic crisis.
