House Speaker Nancy Pelosi herded her Democrat majority into the chamber for a show vote on Saturday, approving additional funding for the Post Office as her bankrupt party continues to pretend that President Trump is going to ‘steal’ the November election.
The House of Representatives kicked off heated debate Saturday morning over a $25 billion funding bill for the United States Postal Service (USPS) that Democrats say is needed to prevent President Trump from trying to “destroy” the Post Office before the 2020 mail-in election, while Republicans dismissed this “conspiracy theory” and blasted Democrats for staging a purely political vote between two presidential conventions.
“I am again on the floor of the House of Representatives watching a cartoon,” said Rep. Steve Womack, R-Ark. “About the only outcome this debate is going to have today is one of entertainment value — nothing substantive.”
Democrats, however, framed the rare Saturday session as a “five-alarm fire” after Postmaster General Louis DeJoy started operational and equipment changes that have slowed down mail delivery for their constituents.
“This is an emergency,” said Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass. “And on top of that, we have a president who does not want every vote counted in the upcoming election because he believes that if we do count every vote he will lose. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. More and more people are going to be voting by mail.”
'This president is on a warpath to destroy the postal service,' added Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis.
What a load of garbage.
Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., said Democrats are using the USPS to gin up “a new Trump conspiracy theory” even though the president doesn’t control the Postmaster General.
“Seems insane, but all too typical for the Trump-hating Democrats,” Lesko said.
Yep. And not only that, but Trump already said he would veto the legislation if it made it to his desk, saying the “USPS does not need a $25 billion bailout.”
No doubt the ‘mainstream media’ will pass it off as something substantial while bashing Republicans for not taking it seriously.
Because it’s not serious.
The postal service has been broken for decades. It’s been hemorrhaging money for just as long.
Anyone who believes Democrats can fix all of those problems with $25 billion and two-and-a-half months before an election are as delirious as Nancy Pelosi.
