Or is this just a way to protect Democrat donors from losing the support of USPS Unions. Maybe that is the true reason for Democrats for junk mail.
The Senate Majority Leader is fighting to make sure the junk mail on which so many seniors depend doesn’t wither on the vine:
In his opening speech on Wednesday, Reid called on the Senate to quickly move forward on the passage of S. 1789, the 21st Century Postal Service Act, which restructures pension plans for Postal Service employees as well as allows the USPS to access over payments in the Federal Employee Retirement System.
“Madam President,” Reid said to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), the presiding officer of the Senate, “I’ll come home tonight here to my home in Washington and there’ll be some mail there. A lot of it is what some people refer to as junk mail, but for the people who are sending that mail, it’s very important.
“And when talking about seniors, seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world,” Reid continued. “Elderly Americans, more than anyone in America, rely on the United States Postal Service, but unless we act quickly, thousands of post offices … will close. I’ve said this earlier today; I repeat it.”
Why am I guessing that the “junk mail” Reid is worried about being delivered to his elderly constituents are the letters from Harry Reid’s office?
And what do you think they depend on, Democrat party mailers, sent by the USPS. MAybe they could burn them to keep warm, since Democrats and Obama have made heating oil so expensive.
Don’t they do email? And Internet?
