Carper Using Facebook to Push House on Postal Service Reform Bill

June 5, 2012
Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) has a new Facebook timeline page up today dubbed "Priority Fail" that tracks how the House has yet to take up a bill that supporters say would reform the struggling U.S. Postal Service. The USPS has lost $1 billion since April when the Senate passed its version of the reform bill, according to Carper.  

"The longer the House delays action, the more consumers and businesses become uncertain about the future of the Postal Service," Carper said in a statement. "To protect a mailing industry that employs over 8 million people and generates almost $1 trillion in economic activity each year, we need congressional action - and the ball is in the House's court."

The Facebook page goes back to May 2011 when Carper introduced the POST Act and traces legislative action on that and other reform bills. It includes links to a variety of news stories following the Senate's passage of the reform bill about how the House has not advanced the Senate bill or a version of its own.

On his website, Carper also has a running tally of how much the USPS has lost "since the Senate passed comprehensive postal reform ... while the U.S. House has failed to act."
