Oregon’s Senators Challenge Mail Changes

Oregon’s senators are challenging the post office’s plan to end Saturday mail service.

In a letter to the postmaster general, Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley discuss that the change can’t be made without congressional approval.

The senators also point out a shift to five-day service could lead to further declines in mail volume and revenues, which would worsen the U.S. Postal Service’s overall condition.

Twenty-two other state senators also wrote letters to the postmaster Friday, saying that move would impact 70,000 jobs.

    If the U.S. Government would stop forcing its will on other sovereign nations, we wouldn’t be in these so-called wars on terror. What did we spend on these recent wars (in the past ten years) about a trillion?

    I bet that could have helped the U.S. Postal Service…

    Not to mention saving thousands of men and women’s lives who served a dis-honest and dis-functional Government!

  2. Ben Dover says:

    Dear Postmaster, don’t listen to those stupid senators. If it will kill 70,000 jobs, the president will love it. That is his goal, kill every job as fast as you can.

      and to think more stupid people re-elected a president who will destroy this country in 8 years. Problems so bad, we may never be able to dig out from it. And if we did, it would take 30 plus years to undo.

      But why get upset about that? Heck 50 percent of them are getting free tax payer dollars. The old adage….. don’t bite the free hand that feeds you.

      Its pathetic and a disgrace what the democrats have done to our country.

  3. jason marks says:

    our law makers don’t know ANYTHING about what they are talking about. But rather just kowtowing to old people.

    Its a disgrace. Fix the problem with retirement (oh wait, that’s right, that money is diverted to subsidize the federal government) And the Postal Service can switch to 5 day without Merkley’s approval Apparently he doesn’t know that either.
