In case you haven’t heard, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is in danger of running out of operational funds unless Congress intervenes. President Trump is willing to let the USPS go bankrupt, which will affect the lives of millions of Americans who rely on the postal service to deliver life-saving medication, mail-in ballots, and more.
