The United States Postal Service is a wonderful national treasure, enshrined in the Constitution and supported by the American people. Without any taxpayer funding, the USPS serves more than 150 million households and businesses each day, providing affordable, universal mail service to all - including rich and poor, rural and urban, without regard to age, nationality, race or gender.The Postal Service and postal jobs are threatened by those who would undermine the postal services and dismantle this great public institution. Even some postal executives have been complicit in the drive toward the destruction of the Postal Service and ultimate privatization. In the face of these attacks, we are fighting to protect and enhance vibrant public postal services now - and for many generations to come.
