Congressman Gerry Connolly, Democrat from Northern Virginia, told the local DC CBS station that you personally requested the CARES Act stimulus bill be stripped of $25 billion for the postal service. Connolly claims that unless the USPS gets that $25 billion, the agency will be run out of money by June. He accuses you of hastening the demise of the postal service. Could you respond to that, please?
The biggest – I’m the reason the postal service… The postal service has lost billions of dollars very year for many, many years. I’m the demise. This is a new one. I’m now the demise of the postal service.
I’ll tell you who’s the demise of the postal service. So, these internet companies that give their stuff to the postal service, packages. I don’t run the postal service. You have a group of people, so-called independent people, and they run it.
But these packages are, they lose money every time they deliver a package for Amazon or these other internet companies, these other companies that deliver. They drop everything in the post office and they say, you deliver it. And if they’d raise the prices by actually a lot, then you’d find out that the post office could make money or break even. But they don’t do that. And I’m trying to figure out why.
These are independent boards. They were appointed by other administrations. They’re sort of long-term, they’re there for a long time. And I’ve been talking to them also. You can look it up, take a look. They should raise – they have to raise the prices to these companies that walk in and drop thousands of packages on the floor of the post office and say, deliver it. And they make money, but the post office gets killed, okay?
So they ought to do that. And we’re looking into it. And we’ve been pushing them now for over a year. And you know that because you’ve seen the stories. I’m pushing them.
It’s not fair to – these great, wonderful modern companies. They walk into our old post office with all these routes that could never be built. You could never build them. They go into areas that you could never do, and they say, here, deliver this.
And they lose a lot of money per package.
[And they have to raise their prices, but this postal commission doesn’t do it. Now, we just got a chance to appoint a couple of people onto the commission, as I understand it, and that’s good. But they have to raise their prices -]
Otherwise they’re just going to lose a lot of money.
And tell your Democrat friend that he ought to focus on that, because if he focused on that, he could truly save the post office.
The post office has been losing billions of dollars a year for many, many years.
[And have him take a look at that because that’s the way to solve the problem.]
