Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is the lead Senate Republican on issues concerning the United States Postal Service. Yesterday on the Senate floor, Collins delivered an impassioned defense of her vision for the future of the USPS. She drew sharp contrast between her plan and the proposals of Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe.
“The postmaster general and I fundamentally disagree on how to save the U.S. Postal Service,” Collins said. “I am concerned, indeed deeply worried, that he will continue to make decisions that will severely degrade the service and drive away customers.”
