The American people are continuing to suffer this week, not only from the deadly coronavirus pandemic but from the economic fallout that our national shutdown has caused.
In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Americans have been forced to employ the use of social distancing as our medical community continues to search for a cure, treatment, or vaccine that will be proven effective against it. This pseudo-isolation has its downfalls, however, as industries dependent upon people gathering with one another stagnate and fail. This includes the restaurant, music, and sports industries that employ an unfathomable number of Americans who also live paycheck to paycheck.
So, when Congress went on recess last week, Americans were predictably furious. And now that Congress is back in session, but not working on more coronavirus stimulus, they’re going to be even more heated.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling the House back into session over the crisis at the U.S. Postal Service, setting up a political showdown amid growing concerns that the Trump White House is trying to undermine the agency ahead of the election.
Pelosi is cutting short lawmakers’ summer recess with a vote expected Saturday on legislation that would prohibit changes at the agency as tensions mount. President Donald Trump’s new postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, has sparked nationwide outcry over delays, new prices and cutbacks just as millions of Americans will be trying to vote by mail to avoid polling places during the coronavirus outbreak.
The left’s conspiracy theory about Trump sabotaging the USPS has been just the latest in a long line of dubious attacks on the President, and the fact that it is taking priority over millions of Americans who are going hungry and facing eviction tells us all we need to know about the ruling class in Congress.
