Democrats continue push for $25B to help Postal Service, as DeJoy promises no operational changes

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy vowed on Tuesday to not enact any operational changes ahead of the November 3rd election.

This comes as Congress remains deadlocked with the White House on what will come next for the shipping giant.

Democrats are pushing for $25 billion in funding for the postal service, which President Donald Trump says he doesn’t support.

DeJoy on Tuesday pledged to not enact any changes to the postal service ahead of the November general election amid concerns the moves would continue to cause service disruptions and potentially lead to absentee and mail-in ballots not being counted.

“The postmaster general’s latest statement leaves too many important questions unanswered about protecting the sanctity of our voting system this November,” U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said in a statement. “These operational changes should have never have happened in the first place, and they must now be reversed.”

Rural communities rely more heavily on the postal service. While other communities do not rely on it as much. That is just one of several reasons why the Postal Service, as a business model, has not thrived in recent years as it once had.
