House passes $25B in ’emergency’ Post Office funding, White House threatens veto

By Fox News, August 22, 2020

The House of Representatives Saturday passed a $25 billion funding infusion to the United States Postal Service in a bill that also would reverse new cost-cutting measures and ban any efforts to slow down the mail until at least next year.

The vote was 257-150 with 26 Republicans joining the Democrats.

Democrats called the rare “emergency” session in the middle of the summer recess because they contend President Trump and new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy are trying to sabotage the 2020 election by delaying service that could compromise mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are experiencing a global pandemic and now our U.S. Postal Service is under attack,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. “Let it be clear: This administration is waging an authoritarian campaign to sabotage this election by manipulating the postal service to suppress our votes … This is not a conspiracy theory. This is fascism. We will not stand for this.”

Rep. Gerald Connolly, D-Va., said DeJoy is “a crony and major donor of the president.” Together, they have waged a campaign to disrupt the timeliness of mail delivery and erode public confidence in USPS that — if successful — would be “the largest voter suppression in American history since Jim Crow,” Connolly said.

Republicans dismissed the Democrats’ election concerns as “conspiracy theory.” GOP members said the Post Office is not in a crisis and can handle any uptick in volume from mail-in ballots, pointing to its $14 billion in available cash and access to a $10 billion loan from the Treasury.

“Like the Russia hoax and impeachment sham, the Democrats have manufactured another scandal for political purposes,” said Rep. James Comer, R-Ky.

Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., said Democrats are using the USPS to gin up “a new Trump conspiracy theory” even though the president doesn’t control the Postmaster General.

“Seems insane, but all too typical for the Trump-hating Democrats,” Lesko said.
