Despite what media may tell you, the post office will stay open as long as there is a US government.
They're running out of things to scare us with. Just hyperbole from a couple of senators looking for money. Or face masks. Or something.

And the federal government wants to run the healthcare industry? Right.

Sounds to me like they want a big bailout to cover their dwindling pensions and retirement funds.

"Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, postal workers have been on the front lines, considered "essential workers" who must continue to do their jobs as usual while others stay home. But some lawmakers are warning that without more support, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) could completely shut down in the next few months, threatening the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Last week, Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney, the chair of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Gerry Connolly, chair of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, said in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that the COVID-19 crisis is threatening the future of mail service in the U.S."

If those workers walk off the job many of them will never return

meaning they could lose their pension
that would depend on how many years they have put in.....

& donny is counting on that. no reliable mail service = no voting by mail.

So in other words, the Democrats are counting on all those absentee ballots to win?

more like how donny admitted that a (R) will never win again if there were an easier access to voting.
You know the things that go on in your head aren't facts....right?

<pfffft> that was sub par.... better luck next time.

It's the American Postal Workers Union.

They're always on strike, in solidarity with their co-workers at UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc., filing federal felony charges over anything "potentially" hazardous, and reserving the right to refuse service to anyone, while acting as an agent for service of legal process, and arbitrarily confiscating any items of particular value if not declared, denying mail-order delivery of items marked up for local brick-and-mortar retail, serving targeted individuals off their federal property with federal criminal trespass orders, delivering illegal drugs, always looking for a "fall guy" or somebody else to take the fall for the drug-dealing charges, from which they are exempt as federal employees.

Oh don't worry the stunning enthusiasm for Joe Biden will save you, I'm quite sure
But your sword swallowing devotion to “little hands” won’t save him. The traitorous piece of shit is toast come November.

I didnt say all of them would lose their job and their pension

but if the post office shuts down more people will go paperless

and more packages will be delivered by fedex

and more people will shop online and get deliceries from Amazon or walmart, ect

Thank you for showing your ignorance. The Postal Service operates as a quasi-governmental agency. They do not receive any tax money. However they are also forced to make upfront payments for pension benefits for their workers. If the Post Office were to shut down it would be a devastating blow to a already reeling economy. You demonstrate so much stupidity.

Actually, one of the main problems I have with the Post office is the fact that they keep hiring nitwits that deliver your mail all over the neighborhood...

Most places would fire you for that kind of incompetence....

They are trying their best to stop us from communicating with one another. Pres.Trump was using these rallies and the media to see how many supporters he has. And he also includes those who sends in donations to his campaign by mail or internet.
And Soros control Big Tech

The federal employees got Coronavirus® etc. and they can't handle the "potentially hazardous" mail of "socially irresponsible" people who might be gun owners or "sovereign citizens" or others who have been banned by the federal government.

Two democrat party House committee chairs sent a letter to Republican Senate majority leader and leaked the contents to CBS. What else is new.
