We Delivered!

Guys, looks like we delivered for the USPS:

The Senate on Tuesday passed sweeping bipartisan legislation to overhaul the US Postal Service’s finances and allow the agency to modernize its operations.

The final vote was overwhelmingly bipartisan 79-19. The bill now heads to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature.

The Postal Service Reform Act — which cleared the House last month by 342-92 — would require retired postal employees to enroll in Medicare when eligible, while dropping a previous mandate that forced the agency to cover its health care costs years in advance. Those two measures would save the USPS nearly $50 billion over the next decade, according to the House Oversight Committee. The legislation would also require the USPS to create an online dashboard with local and national delivery time data.

Now, let’s get rid of DeJoy before he spends the money on kickbacks to his own company.

  1. Well, given the current rage in R-controlled states to just flat eliminate vote by mail, it matters less that DeJoy is still there to fuck up the vote.

    (they’re still wrangling about just how hard to make it to vote by mail in AZ. Latest I hear is you’ll have to provide ID, your SSN, an excuse, hand-deliver it to your precinct and provide a working CC number so they can charge you for the privelege.

    and I’m only slightly sure that the last is actually a joke)

    So the Senate did two good things in one week (this and the anti-lynching bill)? What the hell is going on?
