Time: 8:30-10:00 a.m.
Since he took over as chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, one of Rep. Issa's main objectives has been to try to reduce the pay, benefits and collective-bargaining rights of postal employees. His legislation is designed to eliminate thousands of middle-class positions from the current Postal Service workforce and to close thousands of community post offices across the nation.
This could be avoided if Rep. Issa would agree to endorse and move forward on H.R. 1351, a bill that would allow the USPS to use its pension surpluses to cover its pre-funding costs for future retiree health benefits, thereby resolving the immediate financial crisis without causing collateral damage. To date, the congressman seems to believe that the country would be better served by destroying the Postal Service instead of by saving it.
We need to stand up for our rights and let Rep. Issa know the Postal Service is America!
