The USPS Needs You

The President of the United States put out a proposal to overhaul the federal government on June 21, 2018. Included in this proposal is privatizing the Postal Service, allowing a private company to come in and buy the Postal Service. Should this happen the first thing that would not exist anymore are the Unions. With no Union, there is no contract. Your wages, holidays, annual and sick leave would no longer exist as we know them. We would no longer be a Federal agency, so we would not belong to Federal benefit programs like health insurance and retirement options.

S. Res 633 Introduced
On September 18, 2018, Senator McCaskill introduced S. Res 633 -  a resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that Congress should take all appropriate measures to ensure that the United States Postal Service remains an independent establishment of the Federal Government and is not subject to privatization.  The bill currently has 27 cosponsors.  Please contact your Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul and request they cosponsor this bill.
This bill is the Senate version of the House of Representatives resolution H. Res 993, which currently has 196 cosponsors.  Of those only Representative John Yarmuth has signed as a cosponsor for Kentucky.  Please contact your Representative and request they support you by signing as a cosponsor.  I have already delivered political mail from my Representative requesting my vote in the Fall elections.  I am looking forward to supporting anyone who is willing to support me.
S. Res 663 has 32 cosponsors in only 6 days.   It was introduced on 9/18/18 and on 9/26/18 had 32 cosponsors.  The Senate majority is 51.
The House version H. Res 993 as of 9/26/18 has 204 cosponsors.  The House majority is 218.
Of the Kentucky Senators and Representatives only Representative John Yarmuth has cosigned on these bills.  Please contact your Representative and the KY Senators to ask them to cosponsor these bills to protect the United States Postal Service from privatization.
