Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I watched the senate hearing Friday and read the GAO report (8 May 2020), following a month of marked "stakeholder" complaints and another month of lathering by DCCC to depose USPS Governors-appointed PM General. who started work June 16, 2020. The irony is, the DNC agitated for universal absentee voting all spring in fear of polling station infections.

House passes an additional $25 billion for Postal Service as Trump tweets opposition

The House of Representatives passed legislation Saturday to prevent any further changes at the United States Postal Service and to provide $25 billion in funding ahead of an expected surge in mail-in ballots in the November election. [...] President Donald Trump, in a Saturday tweet, called the controversy over the Postal Service a "hoax" and told Republican lawmakers to vote against it, but over two dozen House Republicans joined all Democrats in voting for the bill. It passed by a 257-150 vote.
The statement below is factually incorrect. The CARES Act didn't appropriate funds for USPS.
Democrats asked for $25 billion in recent coronavirus stimulus talks to help the Postal Service handle the uptick in mail-in ballots, but the stimulus talks have stalled without a deal in sight.
And USPS funding in the HEROES Act (House bill referred to senate), Title III, is restricted.

Which explains the stand-alone bill with the tawdry title Delivering for America, H.R.8015.
