To my friends and family,
Please sign this petition. Help us to keep the Postal Service delivering mail 6 days a week. We are not broke. If we didn't have to pay 5.5 billion dollars a year to pre-fund future retiree health benefits we would have made over 6 million dollars the last four years.In addition there is between 55 and 75 billion dollars in surplus in our civil service retirement fund as well as a surplus of 6.9 billion in our FERS retirement fund. This is our money, not taxpayer money. We receive no monies from taxpayers and haven't since the early 1980's.
If H.R. 2309 passes, hundreds of thousands of middle class jobs will be lost. Our returning vets will have one less landing space in their search for work. Vets make up at least 25 percent of our workforce. It is important that we attack Issa on all fronts as he moves to get his bill to the floor for a vote, so please share this with your friends and family. Thank you for all your help with this.
