Sen. Hirono opposes President Trump’s efforts to privatize the U.S. Postal Service


WASHINGTON, D.C.- Senator Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii) released the following statement in support of Hawaii U.S. Postal Service (USPS) workers’ rally to oppose the Trump administration’s efforts to privatize USPS:

“To the more than 2,000 hard working employees of the U.S. Postal Service in Hawaii, I stand in solidarity with you and strongly oppose President Trump’s push to privatize the U.S. Postal Service. Privatization means prioritizing profits over people. President Trump’s plan would hurt low-income and rural communities in Hawaii because servicing these areas is often less profitable than urban areas. Cutting or outright ending services would be devastating to so many communities throughout Hawaii and the country. We must stand together against yet another harmful effort by the President to hurt workers and our communities.”

    Good Lord, did we really elect this loon? Just another example of how we Hawaiians continue to embarrass ourselves by electing some idiot who knows nothing more than to oppose anything that Trump likes, or to spout division based on the Democratic party rhetoric.

    All this politician cares about is re-election and dividing the state and nation to keep “HER POWER”. We have got to do better than this for elected officials.

    What is so wrong with getting the USPS going towards privatization? It won’t happen overnight. There are incredible advantages to privatization. Look at how well UPS and FedEx perform. Imagine the US postal service with the capabilities of either of these two organizations. If Mazie was operating on anything other than her brainstem, she would be involved in making this work instead of the mindless blather she spouts.
