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 want to thank @RepAdams, @RepPeterDeFazio, and @RepMaloney for their leadership on this issue, and the 127 Members of Congress who joined our letter today.

Every single one of our constituents relies on the #PostalService. We will not let Trump destroy it without a fight.
