House Dems Continue to Push USPS Conspiracies in Marathon Hearing

On Monday, congressional Democrats held yet another marathon hearing — this time to question Postal Service officials about baseless conspiracy theories that the Left has been spreading about the Postal Service and November's upcoming election.  While both Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and Post Office Board of Governors Chair Robert Duncan testified at today's hearing, the questioning was predominantly directed at DeJoy.  Today's hearing followed last Friday's hearing before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

It comes as no surprise that Democratic lawmakers continued to be combative and disrespectful to witnesses before the committee:

One of the greatest criticisms of today's hearing is that it was out of order in the legislative process.  This past weekend, House Democrats passed legislation relating to the Post Office and elections.  House Democrats declined to hold a hearing prior to the weekend vote.  But do House Democrats ever do anything that makes sense?

Despite the many distracting conspiracies pushed by Democrats, today's hearing clearly proved that the Post Office is more than ready for November.

The legislation passed in the House over the weekend likely will not be taken up by the Senate.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell explained:

Senate Republicans are committed to making sure the Postal Service remains well equipped to fulfill its important duties. But the President has already made it clear he will not sign the Speaker’s partisan stunt into law. And the Senate will absolutely not pass stand-alone legislation for the Postal Service while American families continue to go without more relief. The Kentuckians I speak with every day need more help.

Democrats talk a big game, but they fail to offer real solutions for Americans.  The bill ties the hands of the Post Office to make positive changes relating to the election and only helps Democrats raise money for their campaigns:

House Democrats should focus on creating practical solutions to the many problems Americans are currently facing.  Instead, they waste their time holding dramatic and meaningless committee hearings and writing legislation that blatantly ignores the needs of Americans who are facing hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
