Save Our Postal Service!

The United States Postal Service is preparing to cut nearly a quarter million jobs and shut down post offices all over the country. Hundreds of rural post offices and processing centers face closure on May 15th, when a six-month moratorium on consolidations expires, even though an advisory report by the Postal Regulatory Commission will not be finished until August.

Due to a predictable budget shortfall caused by the current U.S. Congress, the Post Master General has recommended cutting the number of delivery days, consolidating processing centers, ending next-day delivery of first-class mail, and downsizing one of the few institutions ordained by the US Constitution. Essentially, the USPS is being forced into a death spiral through service cuts, revenue drops, and bankruptcy-inducing budget requirements that may soon lead to the total collapse of the national postal service.
