"u. s postal service" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Colorado's secretary of state is now asking the federal government to send out new postcards to voters with the correct information about voting in the state. This comes after Secretary Jenna Griswald filed a lawsuit over the weekend against the U. S Postal Service for sending out the mailers with what she calls misleading information about Election Day. Amounting to voter suppression. Colorado Secretary of State Jenna Griswald, a Democrat, joins us now. Welcome. Thank you for having me on and secretary Griswald. A lot of people, not just folks in Colorado have gotten this postcard from the Postal Service, but many still haven't received it. What exactly did it say? And what about it concerns you. Well, there were two things that were wrong for Colorado voters. The first was the suggestion that Colorado voters need to request an absentee ballot. We send a mail ballot to every registered voter, so there's no need to take that step. And the second thing was about the time line of when voters need to send back the mail ballot by mail. And the fact is the timeline was wrong for Colorado, and it could have really disenfranchising effects have any other states joined in this lawsuit or expressed interest in joining Well, you know, we were alerted on Thursday from another state that this postcard was going out in their state and received confirmation from the United States Postal Service on Friday. And requested the Postal Service not send the postcard. They refused. And so we filed a temporary restraining order late on Friday night. When that was filed, other states asked to see the complaint. I know it's a major concern across the nation. And overall, you know, I just think there's so much misinformation in this election and my job as secretary of state is making sure that voters get correct information, so that's the goal of this lawsuit. And this is a major problem because it's also different, depending on where you live the rules around voting. The Postal Service, however, says the intent was to add clarity to the voting process. Are you questioning its motives? You said this amounts to voter suppression as I mentioned. Well, you know, this could have started out as well intentioned, but unfortunately, when we told the United States Postal Service about the mistake, they plan to just move forward. And it can amount in voter suppression. You know, I recently visited both of Colorado's tribes. One I went down to southwest Colorado to talk with tribal leaders about voting. And in that region of the state. Sometimes the male takes longer than what the Postal Service notice said. And in Colorado, we have to receive the voted ballot back on Election Day. So sending wrong information to voters can disenfranchise them. I would hate to see someone in southwest Colorado or one of the tribal members follow the USPS is advice and Not have their ballot, count it You're asking that the Postal Service send out new mailers. Why do you feel this is the best way to clear things up for voters? And and with that? I mean, the Postal Service actually needs toe at the correct details for every state. Well, we're asking the Postal Service to fund us sending a new mailer on and I do think that you know, the mailer is good for some states. But there's a lot of states at this point that have adopted vote by mail for all where they're just sending a ballot to every registered voter. And the United States Postal Service. Making this mistake of treating the entire country of the same when it comes to voting really underlines the need for a national standard for vote by mail where every registered voter receives a ballot. And like in Colorado, there's early in person voting, same day voter registration and hundreds of ballot drop boxes of voting centers across the state. I think it really highlights the need to end the era of long lines and inconvenience and expect more nationally from Elections administration. What is your next step on this effort? Well, so we filed a restraining order on Friday. We won the restraining order motion the United States Postal Service, believe it or not fought that restraining order, and they lost. Now we have a hearing on Friday. You know, it's really important as media and election officials to make sure that voters have access to good information because confusion or misinformation. Might just incentivize people not to cast a ballot or participate in Colorado. Every voter will receive a ballot. And once you get that ballot, you can mail it back vote in person or drop it off at one of hundreds of drop boxes across the state. And I believe that every American deserves the same right as Coloradans with voting, and everybody should just have access to a mail ballot. That's Jenna Griswald, secretary of state for Colorado, speaking with us about her lawsuit against the U. S Postal Service for mailing out information to voters that she says is not just confusing but wrong. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. Well. Here's one way ballot access has expanded since 2016. Nearly two million Americans convicted of felonies have had their voting rights restored since the last presidential election, most of them in the key state of Florida. Two years ago, voters approved a constitutional amendment granting the right to vote to 1.4 million felons in Florida. But a federal appeals court ruled Friday that the state would cut would hold that right from anyone who has not paid off outstanding fines and court fees. Desmond Meade is executive director of the Florida writes Restoration Coalition AA group that has raised $4 million to pay off the debts of about 4000 felons so far. And Desmond. What is your reaction to the court's ruling? You know my immediate reaction, Tiny with the fact that I think that the market she took a big blow, unfortunately, were now forced to live in the state where a person would have to be forced to choose between. Putting food on a kid's table or voting or paying their rent and mortgage or voting. And I don't think that that's what democracy is all about, You know, access to the Poles should be unencumbered and free. They shouldn't be a price tag on it. What are you hearing from people who have been able to actually pay off their debt about how they were able to do that and how much they had to pay. Well, you know that that's they vary from person to person. I can use myself as an example. You know, when I was under the impression that I have completed everything, and I registered to vote in January of 2019, and it wasn't until there was a clemency investigation. That it was unearthed that there were about three cases in which I still hold court calls which total to about $1200, and fortunately you know, I could afford that $1200. But that's not the case. For many of the 700 plus 1000 people who still have outstanding fines and fees and those people you're talking about. You actually have been working to register, folks that you're calling returning citizens to vote. How are you reaching them? And what kind of reception are you getting? Yes, I'm glad you asked that question. We're tryingto utilize influences. Whether they're celebrities, athletes. We've also been doing our own outreach to individuals. But let me tell you a great reaction. We have a young lady. She just found out from her doctor that she had six months to live. And as we will graduate during her, she just started crying. You know, she was saying how for past 24 years you've been wanting to vote, but she thought that she would never be able to because she had a felony conviction and she suffered through drug addiction. And as he was signing her name on the dotted line in the voter registration form, she looked up in the ass are canvases, so please pray that God would allow her to live long enough to cast her ballot. It's stories like this, that really, you know, it angers me to think that the state would try the direct obstacles to prevent American citizens from voting, but at the same time and also, I guess strengthens my resolve to make sure that we remain committed to ensuring that every one of the 1.4 million If they want to have an opportunity to participate in election. We're going to do everything within our power to make sure that happens well. Researchers estimate that 85,000 felons have already registered to vote and In its ruling last week, the court said Florida cannot kick people off the rolls without screening those registrations to see if they had any unpaid fines. So so far, the state has not done that. So is it your understanding that those people who already registered will actually be able to vote this year? Oh, Yesterday's on. We're going to make sure of that because I just like to stay the floor that might be screening. We're going to be screaming as well. And if we find individuals that's on the voting rolls already that they have outstanding fines of court cause We're going to do everything within our power to make sure that those are resolved..

"My name is Patty Pel tacos and I'll be your host this hour on today's show, We'll be talking again about the U. S. Postal Service. We'll be talking with Monique Morrissey, an economist at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D. C. First a little background today. Postmaster General Lewis to Joy is testifying before the House Oversight Committee last Friday, he appeared before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Ah committee chaired by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson. The joy is talking about how changes he has instituted have slowed mail service. Postmaster General Lewis to Joy is making changes to cut postal service costs. These changes include cost to overtime and cuts to the time for preparing mail for delivery. But these cuts are also translating to delays that are affecting everything from the delivery of medications, the delivery of live baby poultry who are arriving dead and the delivery of packages of every size. In the House of Representatives. Ah Oh, excuse me, kind of lost my place there. Um, So so ah, the Copen 19 pandemic has intensified and ongoing decline and first class mail. The drop in revenue associated with less first class mail is not helping the Postal Service is already strained Finances. Finance is strained by the requirements of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, an act of Congress. As essential workers. Postal employees are still sorting handling, transporting and delivering mail through extraordinary working conditions last week, Yusa today spoke with U. S Postal Service spokeswoman Martha Johnson, according to Johnson, as of last Wednesday. 8789 postal employees have tested positive for covert 19. That is slightly more than 1% of the U. S. P s work for first Well, the volume of first class mail has dropped. The volume of packages has shot up. And in late October and early November, the Postal Service will be sorting and transporting and delivering election ballots. Plus, the Postal Service is also dealing with all of Thesent SIS bureau mailings, including the return of U. S census forms. There are a lot of people who want to support the US Postal Service, which is, of course, still a public service tomorrow. Tuesday, August 25th, the American Postal Workers Union will be holding a day of action. Here's what the union is demanding from elected officials and post Postmaster General Lewis to joy. Provide at least 25 billion. An immediate support for the Postal Service. Stop the mill slowdown policies introduced by post match postmaster general to Joy Ensure public confidence and voting by mail by providing all necessary resources for the most timely delivery of election. Male possible. You can learn more about tomorrow's day of action at a p w dot org And now to Monique Monique Morrissey. Welcome to a public affair. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thanks for having me, Patty. Oh, great. So Monique, I was wondering if if you could start with the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act and why that has created such a drain on the Postal Service's finances. Yeah, well, it was passed in 2006 right before the great recession and it had a lot of a number of provisions. It divided the Postal Service between market dominant or monopoly services, for example, for class on marketing male and what is largely package of things, which they called competitive services, where they had more leeway in setting rates. The in. It did a lot of different things, and it's one of the things I did was capped postage increases for the monopoly mail. The market dominant male. To inflation right before the volume of this mail drop precipitously during the recession, so that was problematic. But I think a bigger really bigger problem that happened is that it suddenly required the Postal Service to pay down 75 years worth. Secretary health benefits a future retiree health benefits within 10 Years on DH. These were astronomical cost, they usually amounted to something like 15% of operating costs for the Postal Service. And made the Postal Service for 10 years look like it was operating in the red when it wouldn't have if the's this extraordinary provisions had not been implement, so it really gave the postal Service of black eye and unnecessarily so I can go on in about why this was included, but really had nothing to do with the Postal Service and everything to do with Congress trying to paper over its own deficits. So so keep telling. I am because it is Congress that passed this act. What would it take, especially given conditions right now for Congress to repeal it, And has there been any discussion of Congress repealing the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act. Yes, there have been various attempts both to change within the regulatory structure to, for example, lift the cap on the postage increase is the one that that limits it to inflation, So they've been formal request because they couldn't do it. Actually Postal Regulatory Committee Commission can do that without requiring an act of Congress. If it deems that there are extraordinary circumstances, and he did it one year briefly in the wake of the great recession, so it's possible to do that. But Congress would need to do to act in order to lift some other restrictions that are in a including, for example, allowing the Postal Service to engage in more business activity. So it's very very one of things that he aided was severely restrict what things the post Service could do So, for example, it allowed post offices to do Photocopying because they did it before, But it didn't. It wouldn't allow them to know other services with then the post up post offices so that we're that is problematic Aspire. There have also been attempted to legislate away the issue of pre funding the retiree health benefits, which, to some extent is a past problem because a 10 year Period during in which they were supposed to be preparing these, the retiree health benefits has lapsed now, but that still means that the Postal Service appears to be in default of these payments and shouldn't be. So there have been attempts legislative attempts that we're not taking up there. We'll take that were passed by the House and not taken up by the Senate. So they have been a lot of attempts to really roll back a lot of these really punitive and wrongheaded provisions in the P ay, but so far, you know, it's the Senate in particular the Republican controlled Senate. Particular has not made any move to do that, nor too you know, of course for by the same pandemic relief for the Postal Service, said that private companies Have benefited from greatly in the cove. It 19 Craig. And so is the Postal Service right now, then still needing to pre pay the retirement benefits or or has that aspect of The Accountability Postal Accountability Enhancement Act has has that ended..

"Tonight's question. Should the Congress bailout the US Postal Service? I would say no to that. I know a lot of letter carriers don't want to hear that. But you work for an organization, the USPS that is allowed by the Constitution, but not required by the Constitution. You work for an organization that is currently losing in round numbers. $10 billion a year, the most recent quarter that the Postal Service reported a $2.2 billion laws in 1/4 3 months of this year. They lost $2.2 billion. So you're 78 billion in the hole. You're losing $10 billion a year and you're begging the Congress for a $25 billion bailout and effectively the Postal Service is saying We can't even get the balance back to the elections headquarters on time on Think about this for just a moment as you consider this question when the post so the U. S Postal Service says we can't guarantee that if they send ballots out by mail too many, if not all, of the people in America, a system that I'm not in favor of it all. I think it is hugely front prone to fraud and manipulation. But Having said that, Let's say we decide to have a vote by mail. The Postal Service handles on an average day, 500 million pieces of mail. The total number of ballots that might be sent out to Americans would have to be returned to the elections headquarters is 150 million pieces of mail. So even if everybody returned their balance on the same two or three days right before an election, it would be a tiny fraction of the post off what the post office usually handles on a daily basis. Somebody wrote to me and said how many Christmas cards today handle during that last week before Christmas in December, and the estimate is three billion Christmas cards. So the same Postal service that says we can handle three billion Christmas cards, plus packages and regular mail on top of that is saying they can't get 150 million Ballads back to the elections headquarters and since most vote by mail schemes called for balance we sent out three weeks before election Day, and people have all of that time to return those as I said, even if they return them in the last couple of days would be a tiny fraction of the amount of mail the Postal Service handles every single day or every single week. On top of that. Since elections headquarters. The elections counting system is based on county elections headquarters. There isn't a single state that does it as an entire state. They do it based on counties. Well, In fact, I'm not aware of of any that that that go outside that rule, so You have Oh, and and ask people that you know how far is the furthest flung part Ofyour county from the county seat in most counties in America? It's 30 or 40 miles. So you're talking about the Postal Service moving a ballot. 30 or 40 miles from somebody who sends it from the farthest flung part of a particular county. Say, Ohio, which I think has 99 counties, the county's air relatively small The Postal Service says it is incapable of moving a ballot 30 or 40 miles in a day or two. That really suggests that their reasons the post office is in such trouble. But should the Congress bailed him out? I'd say absolutely not. And in Friday's pole are Republicans afraid of everybody voting, which is what the Democrats are saying Kamala Harris in particular. I said no. And so did 80% of U. Only 20% of you said Yes..

What exactly is the president saying about mail in voting and what is the reason he's giving for wanting to limit that funding? Well, he said he's admitted that he doesn't want that. Part of the reason why they can't come to an agreement on the bigger deal on Capitol Hill is that he doesn't want to give $25 billion to the Postal Service to help them. Deal with with with a surge of mail over the next few months, which would include mail in voting, and and the president continues to bomb believe that mail in voting is somehow Less safe, less secure. Open a fraud all those things, But, you know, look, the reality is this. The president knows under you know, I think his understood one statistic from his 2016 win. But he can't seem to process any other way. And that's if you take the state of Florida. He won voters who voted on Election Day by 11 points. He lost voters who voted before Election Day, either in male early voting by double digits, but not enough to lose the state. But he almost lost state so in his mind Mail in voting bad for him good for Democrats, So that's why he's on this on this sound on this tyrant, and we're learning this morning that Pennsylvania the key swing state wants to extend the deadline for mail ballots to be counted and the results could be a delay in getting results from that state's after the election happens. What do you think that does for the president's claim? Do you think he has some something of a point that we can't relies only on mailing the voting through the mail process?

That really makes you raise, raise your eyebrow here and wonder what's going on the Postal Service on their own, decided to tell the state essentially let the state of Pennsylvania no. They won't be able to I guarantee that they could deliver these male balance almost sort of forcing the situation. So then the state of Pennsylvania says, Okay, it needs to extend its deadline.
