"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."
