McCaskill Unhappy With USPS Cutting Saturday Deliveries

Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill is none too pleased with the United States Postal Service announcement that Saturday mail delivery is coming to an end.

And she blames House Republicans for it.

"“We won a hard-fought battle in the Senate last year with strongly bipartisan postal reform that would have put the Postal Service on the path to sound financial footing...and provided strict criteria for the Postal Service to meet before eliminating six-day delivery," McCaskill said in a harshly worded statement.

"Unfortunately, instead of passing the bill, the Republicans in the U.S. House abandoned rural America and allowed the legislation to die. And this is the result of their inaction—an unnecessary loss for business, rural families and the principle of compromise.”
