Cosponsor H. Res. 993 and Oppose the Privatization of the U.S. Postal Service!

            For over 240 years, the United States Postal Service and our dedicated postal workforce have performed the essential government function of “providing postal services to bind the Nation together through the personal, educational, literary,
and business correspondence of the people.” In furtherance of this mission, the Postal Service and its more than 500,000 clerks, letter carriers, mail handlers, and other employees deliver the mail to over 157 million residential and business customers
six days a week nationwide.  Given the effectiveness of the Postal Service in fulfilling its critical public service mission, it is not surprising that the American people have consistently ranked the Postal Service as our most trusted government agency. 
In a
recent Gallup poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans also rated the Postal Service as “doing an excellent or good job.”
