The top Republicans on committees overseeing the Postal Service like the plan to cut back on Saturday service.
“This common-sense reform would save the Postal Service more than two billion annually,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., Wednesday.
“In his recent inaugural address, President Obama spoke about the need to find real solutions to our nation’s problems. Supporting the US Postal Service’s plan to move forward with 5-day mail delivery is one such solution worthy of bipartisan support," they added.
Issa chairs the House Government Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Coburn is top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
