Walker: Democrats Push Conspiracy Theories, Not Facts on Usps

U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 8015, the Delivering for America Act:

"Without House committee testimony from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, Nancy Pelosi has called a faux emergency session to push a conspiracy theory through the halls of Congress without facts nor merit," Walker said. "Let this be clear: While millions of Americans are desperately waiting for Pelosi and Schumer to stop holding up coronavirus relief negotiations and help their small businesses, Democrats are instead intent on sporting tin foil hats and promoting baseless narratives."

The United States Postal Service (USPS) is financially solvent through at least August 2021, according to the USPS' own analysis. The agency currently has $14 billion cash on hand along with a $10 billion line of credit option from the Treasury Department, which was created through the CARES Act and supported by Walker.

According to the USPS, election mail is anticipated to only account for less than two percent of all mail volume from mid-September until Election Day.
