Because of the coronavirus crisis, the U.S. Postal Service will not survive the summer without immediate assistance, two members of Congress say.
While airlines and other businesses are included in the legislation, “Somehow the Postal Service is not worthy of any financial assistance in the midst of this crisis,” Connolly said. “It’s to me an outrageous situation. We could have completely returned the Postal Service to solvency and got it started back on its feet and guaranteed continued uninterrupted service to the American people during this crisis and beyond. We’ve decided we’re going to help well-healed industries that have connections, and we’re going to let the Postal Service hang in the wind.”
