House Approves $25B In Funding For Postal Service


The House is providing 25-billion-dollars in funding for the Postal Service after a bipartisan vote in favor – and there were 26 Republicans who joined with all Democrats voting to pass the bill on a 257-to-150 vote.

Still, that’s not changing much as the bill is considered dead on arrival in the Republican-controlled Senate. The legislation prevents the Postal Service from making any operational changes that would slow deliveries.

The vote comes after Postmaster General Louis DeJoy made drastic cost-cutting changes that prompted a backlash from Democrats. They accused DeJoy of sabotaging the upcoming elections to help President Trump be reelected. DeJoy said he was suspending all operational changes until after the election.
