Carson Statement on USPS Decision to End Saturday Delivery

Statement

Location: Indianapolis, IN

Congressman André Carson released today the following statement regarding the Postal Service's recent announcement that they will end Saturday delivery beginning in August:

For too long, political posturing has prevented Congress from taking necessary steps to reform the United States Postal Service, staving off all efforts to maintain high-quality service while also addressing longstanding financial concerns.

In the 112th Congress, Republican leaders refused to end a requirement that the U.S.P.S. fund pensions 75 years in advance, a burden placed on no other company or government entity. That change would have saved the Postal Service billions of dollars, and it is a reform that we could still enact. We need legislation that strengthens the Postal Service, maintains their level of service, and protects the hardworking Americans who rely on its success.
