Stop the Postal Service Reform Act of 2016. #SaveUSPS

From email:

Please sign and share my petition to stop the Postal Service Reform Act of 2016. This is another hostile attack against our nation's postal service and its employees. After years of pre-funding the USPS retiree benefits 75 years in advance, a burden no other business or government agency has to endure, this is a move in the wrong direction. The link follows: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/stop-the-hr5714-postal?mailing_id=35037&source=s.icn.em.cr&r_by=1939235

I also ask you to continue sharing my revised petition of my first petition a few years ago "Save Our Post Office." We must support the US Postal Service and its employees or the day will come when we do not have it in its current form. The link follows: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-our-post-office-91?mailing_id=35037&source=s.icn.em.cr&r_by=1939235

Thank you for your continued support. It is appreciated. It is truly sad that America has reached the level where action like this is even needed.... But it has.

Repubs continue to attack one of the foundations of our democratic republic—the Constitutionally mandated US Postal Service. Their goal is privatization. Once they succeed at that, one can be assured the federal privacy, guarantees and secured delivery that we're used to regarding mail will be chipped away (regs bad f/ biz ya know).

Privatization especially bad with movement to vote-by-mail. Repubs already have admitted (proudly) to voter suppression. Imagine what they could do with votes sent by for-profit business....
