Happy Hour News
We gotta get our message out, we have another special delivery of first class eff’ery :
(CNN) Postmaster General Louis DeJoy plans to lump all first-class mail into a single delivery category as part of his decade-long plan for the agency in a move that would slow the transit of such mail, The Washington Post reported Friday.
Citing two people briefed on his strategic plan for the US Postal Service, the paper reported that DeJoy has outlined getting rid of a type of two-day-delivery first class mail, which includes envelope-sized mail sent locally. All first-class mail would thus be sent in the three- to five-day range currently set for nonlocal mail, according to the Post.
A push to increase postal rates also is in the works, the paper reported.
News of the anticipated shift comes as DeJoy plans to release a new 10-year plan for the agency in the next few days, several sources familiar with his plans told CNN earlier this week.
DeJoy has told those close to him he wants to stay in his role under President Joe Biden, two sources told CNN, despite his troubled tenure at the helm of the Postal Service and his background as a supporter and donor to former President Donald Trump.
The two people familiar told the Post that while the new policy was not expected to affect local service, corporate mail senders such as banks and retailers are concerned that it will exacerbate existing bottlenecks on non-local mail. The plan would also bar first-class mail being transported via airplane, they told the paper.
Essentially this is the way to kill voting by mail, in the dark, when no one is looking. There is no end to their eff’ery.
