In the article, “Post Office Panic” by Patricia Smith, Postal services have been having difficulties with their businesses due to the pandemic currently which has raised concerns about the election.  Since there have been delays with shipments, people are concerned that the ballots will not be counted in time of the election.  The President, Trump, started resenting the Postal Service because of this, granting them no additional funding.  Democrats argue Trump’s actions are to discourage others from doing mail-voting as they’ll assume it won’t be on time for the election.  Postal Services are depended by Americans to deliver paychecks, medicines, and other products, which makes their importance extremely significant.  

This current issue should be that Postal Services are being defunded, not so much the delay of the products.  Postal Services are doing their job to the best of their ability, they can’t control the effects of a pandemic or the amount of time it takes for them to receive a product.  They thoroughly do their job to the best of their ability and they shouldn’t pay the consequences for something they aren’t capable of controlling.

What do you think about this occurring issue?
