Cosponsor H. Res. 33 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,
