Ross: It's "Outrageous" that Postal Service is Spending $2.2 Million at Conference

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross (FL-15) issued the below statement today, the second day of a four-day postal service conference. The U.S. Postal Service executives are currently in San Francisco for a four-day conference costing the taxpayers more than $2 million dollars. Rep. Ross was the Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service, and Labor Policy last Congress.

"The Postal Service loses $25 million each day. When they are broke, why are they spending $2.2 million on a four-day conference in California? When Americans' hard-earned tax dollars are propping up the Postal Service and they will have to sacrifice and not receive mail one day a week, it's outrageous that the U.S. Postal Service is throwing this money at a short conference for their executives."

Background:
-The U.S. Postal Service loses $25 million each day.
-Last year, the U.S. Postal Service accrued a $15.9 billion loss.
-Eliminating Saturday delivery of first-class mail will save $2.5 billion taxpayer dollars annually.
