NALC: A bipartisan majority in the House backs six-day mail delivery

From the National Association of Letter Carriers:

The NALC has learned that 218 House members from both parties—a majority—have now signed on as co-sponsors of H.Res. 137, the measure introduced by Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO) that expresses the sense of the House that the USPS should take “all appropriate measures” to ensure continuation of six-day delivery. “Our members’ hard work continues to pay off,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “This level of support will shore up our defense against the attempts by Congressman Darrell Issa and others to ‘save’ the Postal Service by cutting service—a counterproductive proposal that would surely fail if implemented.” Click here to find out whether your representative is among this majority, and if he or she is not, click here to find out how you can ask your House member to become a co-sponsor of H. Res. 137.

    As long as there is more PAC money out there than the NALC has provided to these backstabbers nothing is a done deal. Pay to Play is alive and well in America.

    This is a very important sign that could be taken as a victory. For all my uneducated fellow people leaving replies that they are sad that this happened, listen here…..If the post office went to 5 days, it WOULD be the start of the demise of the post office. The catalog and newspaper industry would be crippled by the stupid act of 5 day delivery. They CAN NOT alter their printing, publishing, editing times etc. because they rely on other entities besides themselves to do what they do. Another reason, which I don’t know why you people don’t know this, is that if the post office stops 6 day someone else WILL deliver on that day the post office stops. When any agency is struggling financially, the answer is to EXPAND service to get more revenue; not limit it. This is why there are so many people calling for donahoe’s resignation…….He has no idea how to lead a struggling company. He wants to cut and limit service, not grow it. Any idiot knows you need more revenue in hard times. He has not been coming up with any ideas to do this. Congress had to be the one to come up with the idea to let the post office deliver alcohol, which will be coming soon. So for all you people crying about keeping six day delivery, wake up and want to grow the service not kill it. By the way, a lot more than 20% of people want 6 days. The numbers you all read are all fudged numbers controlled by union-hating republicans. Wake up people!
