It's Time to Have a Serious Conversation About USPS Reform

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has been a big focus in national politics in the months ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The USPS’s significant fiscal problems are long-standing and well documented. Mail volume has steadily declined to 142.6 billion pieces in FY 2019 from 213.1 billion in FY 2006. The USPS, which is a self-funded entity by law, hasn’t posted a budget surplus, or profit, since FY 2006 and reported a loss of $8.8 billion in FY 2019, which ended months before COVID-19 hit the United States.

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has become a hot button issue in 2020, one made far worse by the media’s reporting on the subject. The House of Representatives is expected to interrupt the August recess and return to Washington later this week to consider legislation to block changes the USPS had made to manage its long-standing financial woes.

Key Vote NO on the USPS Fairness Act, H.R. 2382

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on the USPS Fairness Act, H.R. 2382. The USPS Fairness Act would repeal the requirement in 5 U.S. Code 8909a(d) that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) make annual payments to the Retiree Health Benefits Fund, from which benefits are paid to retired workers. The Retiree Health Benefits Fund faces an unfunded liability of $70 billion. The USPS Fairness Act essentially sets up taxpayers to bail out this fund.
