Claudia Tenney Stands Up for Post Office and Its Customers
Tenney Committed to Seeing USPS Improve and Thrive

Claudia Tenney said:

“I have been a strong supporter of USPS through my life and in Congress. The Postal Service must survive, but to do that it must adapt. It will require additional investment and innovation to achieve greater sustainability and I am committed to ensuring it gets the resources it needs. I firmly believe the Post Office is both a Constitutionally-created and necessary service. It is the great equalizer for small businesses, allowing them to compete effectively in the marketplace, and a vital lifeline for many of its customers. The Postmaster General’s decision to pause delivery and service changes is welcome to maintain high-quality and timely operations in a time of great need. For the Postal Service to succeed in its mission, many necessary upgrades and innovations need to occur to continue effective and efficient service for USPS’ customers, as have happened over the years.”

Busting myths about USPS service, changes, and elections

2. Despite the fear-mongering, the Postal Services changes won’t affect the delivery of Social Security checks because (under Obama in 2013) Social Securty checks are sent via direct deposit, not the mail.

3. USPS was given a $10 billion loan in the CARES Act which has not begun to spend.

4. The $25 billion in aid to the Postal Service in the HEROES Act was intended to bolster the Postal Service’s overall sustainability and maintain quality service – not to manage elections

5. The independent federal government watchdog (GAO) found USPS’ business model is “not financially sustainable”in 2020.

6. Former President Obama, despite his recent politically-motivated falsehoods, called for major reforms to USPSas president andmajor cuts.
