Efforts to undermine and privatize the U.S. Postal Service has continued since the mid-1970’s, according by the recently published research by Lisa Graves, Executive Director of True North Research, in her article “Wait a Minute, Mr. Koch-Man: The Plot to Kill the Public’s Postal Service”. Libertarians, led by the Koch Brothers, have undermined, and continue to sabotage, funding and the financial solvency of the USPS. Even in the continued importance of the mail system in light of the COVID crisis, bills to help support the Post Office (and its hundreds of thousands of employees) are threatened by this group.
