here is something I received today that merits everyone’s attention:

A bad idea that could dismantle the U.S. Postal Service is gaining traction in Congress, and we need your help to stop it.

Working behind closed doors, holdover members of the House and Senate are trying to ram through harmful changes to the Postal Service before the end of the year — without consulting the American public.

The Postal Service needs reform, but this is not the way to do it. Any changes to this vital American institution should be made carefully, and must be based on a business model that ensures the Postal Service’s future success.

Unfortunately, the deal that is now being cobbled together takes a slash-and-burn approach. It would eliminate or drastically reduce Saturday and door service, and would slow delivery of mail and packages.

Visit Delivering for America TODAY to tell your members of Congress that you believe the Postal Service needs a workable business model that builds on the strength of its network, not tears it apart. Ask your member of Congress to wait until next year before they take up Postal Service reform.

Working behind closed doors?  If that sounds like ALEC--it is!  Furthering the aims of their corporate members who want to privatize the USPS and have been working on this plan for a long time.  If you have not read it already, please click here to read Bob Sloan’s excellent article – ALEC/Koch Cabal Pursuing Privatization of the US Postal Service for UPS and FedEx… exposing this grand theft of one of America’s most venerable resources.  More than 11 thousand people have read his report, and if you have not, you owe it to yourself to understand this situation which will affect everyone in America.
