Pelosi Desparate! Cancels Recess, Calls House Back into Session

The 2020 presidential election will be an event like no other in history.  This is a political spectacle the likes of which the world may have never seen before, and we’re barreling toward a contentious finale as we speak.

The latest bone of contention between the two sides involves the United States Postal Service, on account of the very real possibility that the coronavirus pandemic will force many of our at-risk citizens to vote by mail.

Recent maneuvers by the Trump administration have caught the eye of Democrats, however, with many insisting that the White House is attempting to sabotage any sort of vote-by-mail scheme.

This has prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring Congress back from recess.

Pelosi is cutting short lawmakers’ summer recess with a vote expected Saturday on legislation that would prohibit changes at the agency as tensions mount. President Donald Trump’s new postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, has sparked nationwide outcry over delays, new prices and cutbacks just as millions of Americans will be trying to vote by mail to avoid polling places during the coronavirus outbreak.

“In a time of a pandemic, the Postal Service is Election Central,” Pelosi wrote Sunday in a letter to colleagues, who had been expected to be out of session until September. “Lives, livelihoods and the life of our American Democracy are under threat from the president.”

Of course, struggling Americans will be furious to learn that Congress will not be getting back to work to create a comprehensive coronavirus stimulus package – something that has been stalled by partisan bickering over the course of the last several months.
