Remove U.S. Post Office Pension Punishment

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I support our U.S. Post Office and want to save this national treasure and the jobs of postal workers--repeal the 75 year pension law now!
There are currently 2,588 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Congress imposed a pension law that forced the U.S. Post Office to fund its pension for 75 years in advance & to do it in 10 years. No company, private or public, funds its pensions for workers not yet born. If they did they would go bankrupt. That law is hurting the post office, its workers (at a time when jobs are badly needed), and hurting our economy and mail delivery to many in rural areas that depend on the P.O. for medicines & needed supplies. Ask Congress to repeal that law now!
