Video from the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service and Labor Policy hearing on “Pushing the Envelope: The Looming Crisis at USPS.” The hearing examined the current fiscal situation of the Postal Service, the long-term outlook, and potential areas for postal reform. March 2, 2011.

Here is the video clip of Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Delegate to Congress representing the District of Columbia:
“I have walked with my letter carrier. He is an indispensable party to the American people…Far beyond delivering the mail.”
