NALC opposes H.R. 3801—yet another attack on the Postal Service Jan. 8, 2014—Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee of the House of Representatives (HOGR), has introduced new legislation to eliminate Saturday letter mail delivery right away and Saturday package delivery within five years. “This is a non-starter in terms of both merit and political support,” National Association of Letter Carriers President Fredric Rolando said. “It would hurt the Postal Service, businesses and the public, and it has virtually no support in Congress.” http://nalc.org/depart/legpol/#COLCPE

I support H.R. 3801 ("To repeal the reductions in military retirement benefits made by the Bipartisan Budget Act of") because...My family of six generations which includes the Revolutionary War have paid the price to support this Free Country and Enough said. Our usps sends out mass trash daily for profit and we feel that our country can stand to lose one day of delivery of the trash as opposed our Veterans having to sacrifice more and more. It is easy for folks like Mr.McCain to say the military and it's families can make a sacrifice. He is a retired officer as well as very wealthy and if asked, he wouldn't have a clue about living on a fixed amount of money monthly. Vote Yes to pass this law...

I support H.R. 3801 ("To repeal the reductions in military retirement benefits made by the Bipartisan Budget Act of") because...The text for this bill is unavailable as I write, but without hesitation, the military retirement benefits should be restored with offsetting spending reductions elsewhere. I'm disappointed Rep. Ryan produced a bill with this benefit reduction in it. In addition, I previously wrote in support of the Bipartisan Budget Act based solely on Ryan's statement when the agreement was reached. However, since that time I've learned Ryan was not totally truthful in his statement as there are new fees/taxes associated with the bill and it is based on future spending reductions, that will probably never materialize. I'll be watching. As for the USPS modified schedule I thought it was already determined that Saturday delivery would cease, which I support, and am unaware of what this entails.

I oppose H.R. 3801 ("To repeal the reductions in military retirement benefits made by the Bipartisan Budget Act of") because...Mr Issa surely did not do his homework when coming up with this bill. The U.S. Postal Service has nothing to do with the Federal Budget and ya'll' need to quit scavenging from that particular agency. They operate without any Federal subsides, so where are your savings to add to the military pensions coming from. You play on the ignorance of the people in your constituency, because they do not know this for the most part. There is so much wasteful spending in our government...Why don't you go after the money that was earmarked for one of Issa's earmarked pet project? This Bill is a waste of your time and our money..Drop it!!
