#GOPConvention roll call nothing like #DemConvention, where delegates were virtual from their home states, often highlighting scenic views & products, like #calamari.

Democrats won the roll call [and they should keep doing it that way]

#2020Elections #2020Election
Oh my gosh, the Maryland delegate just stumbled & said Maryland was home to two of the greatest "segregationists" & then corrected himself ... & said "abolitionists."

#GOPConvention
"Trumptana."

Um, well, there's a lot to unpack there.

House GOP claims there are NO DELAYS at the #postalservice.

Some Republicans prefer to shut their eyes, put their hands over their ears, and bury their heads in the sand.

The facts are clear. Let’s review. (1/6)
1⃣ Rs are ignoring the data.

2⃣ Rs are ignoring national headlines.

Postmaster General Louis Dejoy’s opening statement was more focused on long term financial issues facing the #postalservice than on changes made that could impact election mail #NexstarDC Image
DeJoy: Postal service has “Adequate capacity” to handle all election mail. Says if states’ election boards comply with USPS there should be no problems #NexstarDC
“I was made aware when everybody else was made aware.” -Louis DeJoy on mail sorting machines being removed ahead of the election. Says removing them was meant to handle more packages, less volume of letters during #COVID19 #NexstarDC

Sen. Van Hollen and others harp on the #USPS delays being a medical issue, not just a threat to the election. He’s reading letters from constituents waiting for meds #NexstarDC @NewsNationNow Image
Leader Hoyer and Sen. Van Hollen suggest Postmaster General Dejoy’s action might be illegal. “They got caught red handed.” Within the hour DeJoy just announced changes will be delayed until after election #NexstarDC @NewsNationNow Image

1. I once thought that my spiritual life was separate from and more significant than my civic life. As a pastor I operated in this way. I was always involved in the community, but it was secondary. I now know this was wrong. #WeThePeople
2. I know this was a luxury grounded in #privilege. Civic life makes the rights of the vulnerable possible. Civic life makes access to education and health care possible. Civic life is based on equality. And equality flows from free and fair elections.
3. The history of #racism in the United States is the history of voter suppression. The suppression of the vote through #USPSsabotage, the dismantling of the #PostalService, is the latest chapter in voter suppression. It violates our democracy. It cannot be justified.

Internal #USPS Documents Outline Plans To Hobble #Mail 📨 Sorting

'This Will Slow Mail Processing,' A Union Official Wrote On One Of The Documents Announcing The Machine Removals 😟

vice.com/amp/en_us/arti…

“We have a silent majority the likes of which nobody has seen.” Pres. Trump on his election prospects. He’s said he doesn’t believe the polling data is accurate multiple times this week #NexstarDC Image
Q: "Why is your #postalservice dismantling these mail sorting machines?"

Pres. Trump: "He needs money to operate if you're gonna hit him with millions of ballots...it's sitting there...the Democrats don't wanna approve it." #MailInBallots #NexstarDC Image
Democrats have proposed $25 billion for the Postal Service in #HeroesAct. @politico reports White House and Democratic leaders tentatively agreed to as much as $10 billion for the Postal Service in their negotiations, but no #stimulus deal was ever reached. #NexstarDC

Congress has created a 2006 measure which astonishingly makes it prepay retiree benefits 75 years in advance. It has to fund benefits now for workers who haven’t even been hired. The #PostalService is the only agency subject to this absurd requirement #WakeUpAmerica
If that were eliminated, and the #PostOffice Office charged stopped pricing business mail (meaning all that junk you get) at a loss, the #PostalService would be profitable.
The Save the Post Office site sets forth the forces behind the campaign to turn the Post Office into a looting opportunity public-private partnership, including Pitney Bowes, DHL, Federal Express, UPS, and USPS supplier Ursa Major.

Congress cannot be silent in the face of Donald Trump's campaign to sabotage the US Postal Service.

This week, 130 of my colleagues joined our efforts to #SaveTheUSPS.

In addition to the $25 billion in emergency funding included in the Heroes Act, here's what we're calling for:
Sec. Mnuchin is attempting to block USPS from accessing the $10 billion in loan money authorized for USPS in the CARES Act -- a total subversion of Congressional authority.

Any forthcoming #COVID legislation must include language that ends this outrageous, unlawful blockade.
At @realDonaldTrump's behest, the new Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, is doing all he can to grind USPS' operations to a halt.

Any forthcoming #COVID legislation must mandate that USPS return to operational standards as they were prior to DeJoy taking over.

I wrote my book, Preserving the People’s Post Office, back in 2006 as a response to President George W. Bush’s push to privatize the #PostalService. It was wrong then, and any attempt to privatize #USPS remains wrong now. 1/
FedEx, UPS, and other corporations would love to take over only the profitable parts of the Postal Service that fund the USPS’s entire national network. Any commitment to serving rural and low income Americans would be the casualty. 2/
Proponents of privatizing the postal service always claim this would improve efficiency. This claim is mistaken. Efficiency over public service is a disservice to us all. The profit motive would destroy universal mail and delivery service for all Americans. 3/
