After several days of watching and listening to reports on the Post Master and related, I have wondered if anyone really understands the implications of the current administration’s campaign against mail in votes. First  we should understand that we have essentially a lame duck administration abetted by a neer do well Congress. The original sin of Congress in forcing the Post Office to prepay their pension obligations was the beginning of the money issues within the Department. The post office has not been able to break even since that fateful directive in 2006.- HR 6407. This makes the Postal service pay into the retirement and health care fund the amount shown below:

.
`(3)(A) The United States Postal Service shall pay into such Fund–
`(i) $5,400,000,000, not later than September 30, 2007;
`(ii) $5,600,000,000, not later than September 30, 2008;
`(iii) $5,400,000,000, not later than September 30, 2009;
`(iv) $5,500,000,000, not later than September 30, 2010;
`(v) $5,500,000,000, not later than September 30, 2011;
`(vi) $5,600,000,000, not later than September 30, 2012;
`(vii) $5,600,000,000, not later than September 30, 2013;
`(viii) $5,700,000,000, not later than September 30, 2014;
`(ix) $5,700,000,000, not later than September 30, 2015; and
`(x) $5,800,000,000, not later than September 30, 2016.
`(B) Not later than September 30, 2017, and by September 30 of each succeeding year,

This is only part of the entire law, to read it in it’s entirety search: HR6407. The Trump administration and it’s abettors are asserting that the President is correct in his assessment in spite of the fact that many of them benefit from mail in  and absentee votes. This blind following is why we have a raging pandemic and deteriorating economy. It is unfortunate that too many voters latch on to one issue and ignore the wider range of ills brought about by this administration.
