The U.S. Postal Service is facing record demand because of COVID-19 and the upcoming election. Does it have the funds to rise to the occasion?

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump's Postmaster General Louis DeJoy acknowledged delays in mail delivery Friday but defended changes made at the agency amid criticisms the moves would hinder the delivery of mail-in ballots in November's election.

DeJoy abruptly paused operational changes at the U.S. Postal Service Tuesday after drawing strong objections from Democrats and Republicans over the Postal Service's cost-cutting measures, which Democrats in Congress said included cuts in overtime and other steps that have led to mail delivery delays.

In a two-hour-long hearing before a Senate panel and as lawmakers expressed frustration on behalf of constituents who faced mail delays, DeJoy said issues with staffing and mail processing led to delays, and fixes for the delays were taking "a few weeks" instead of the expected few days.

  3. The USPS was never meant to be a profit center for the US. It is there to provide direct mail service to EACH & EVERY address in the United States 🇺🇸💯

      So you have no idea USA today just lied to you about SS checks and retirement?

    • account. This is what fox news has been saying this last week over and over. It’s mostly true but checks are still mailed to those who don’t have bank accounts

  4. Hi Boys 😍💋 💝💖♥️❤️

  5. The PO had plenty of money before the Government wanted them to pay for everyone retirement. This is a govt take over.

    • @Kyle yeah, that’s what I was thinking.

    • Burr Anderson | August 26, 2020 at 2:16 PM | Reply

      They even used that money to pay for retirement to people that weren’t even hired yet. Trump is going to ruin this country just like he screwed up all his other endeavors. Bankruptcy in 4 years.

      Kyle how is it hard to see that?? People in the private sector are constantly lobbying the government for things to become privatized so that they can take their piece of the pie. Claiming they can do it faster, cheaper, better, easier….Without government intervention, the private sector can price things how they want and have little to no accountability to the public its services provide. They just privatize it & then kill any amount of regulation put on it, claiming having those restrictions is socialist, or communist, or Marxist, or whatever trigger-word they’ve decided to hijack that day.

    • The reason the gop made the Post Office pre-pay 75 yrs of pensions was because the Post Office was preparing to buy the nation’s largest fleet of electric vehicles. Republicans can’t have that, now can they?

    • @Diane Denham every Democrats voted for the 75 years of pensions but not every republican 🤔

  7. My mail is not being delivered in sleet or snow…

      Mrs B
      Do you want letter carriers sliding their vehicles on sleet and snow coverd streets into parked cars to get your mail to you? Please see for yourself, this winter, just how easy it is to walk up sleet covered front steps to get to that mailbox.
      Going back down is even worse.
      See for yourself, how much you do not know what you are talking about.

    • Eileen Castillo FYI they drive govt vehicles you bot!

  11. Aug 15 Seoul, South Korea, hundreds of thousands of Korean citizens protested demanding dictator Moon to step down for the April 15 national parliament election fraud and corruption and release former conservative female president who has been unfairly political reprisal imprisoned for 40 months. Moon’s leftist regime has also been using COVID pandemic for oppression in arresting citizens and block rallies spreading fake news as threat for political purpose. The world should know the facts behind current events inside of South Korea everyday.
    South Korea is changing quickly into anti-America pro-China pro- North Korea socialist country.

    1:20 Relying on the sale of postage, products, and services… *And then the politicians and the Postal Regulatory Commission butt in and say, “NO,” to products and services that would increase revenue!* The Postal Service does not operate profitably because *they are **_not allowed_** to operate profitably.*
