Houston, TX — On Monday, Newsweek ran a story that shared how an 82-year-old Texas man had run out of his heart medication. The man said that he had experienced random delivery times through his experience having medications mailed to him. This time, he says, was the first time that he ran out of the medication completely.
Newsweek decided that this case was worthy of a national headline. It was not out of concern for the 82-year-old man. It was not because the USPS was experiencing issues due to COVID-19. It was because they had an agenda to push against Trump.
The story cites the statement from the USPS that says that the COVID-19 pandemic has created issues. It said that they are flexing staff and attempting to handle the shortages, but that was not good enough for Newsweek. They needed to make up a headline to help their cause.
So they decided to blame this on President Trump. They decided that the delay in this man’s medication was because President Trump was withholding funding from the USPS.
The funding referred to is part of the coronavirus relief package that Democrats and Republicans have been negotiating on for some time. Essentially, the negotiations are stalled, as President Trump was forced to take action without any help from Democrats. The American taxpayer was the winner, saving trillions of dollars with the four executive orders as opposed to the massive spending plans that Democrats were pushing for.
Democrats have argued that without the coronavirus aid, millions of Americans would suffer. They would not be able to make it without the unemployment aid. They would not be able to survive without housing assistance or many of the other benefits. Not one single mention of thousands of Americans hurting in this article.
They simply got information about a man who needed his medicine. The story shares that he did get his medication from a local pharmacy, but that wasn’t important to Newsweek. The important thing was the narrative that they could push against President Trump.
According to the left, there’s no way for our country to continue without the USPS handling our election. The same USPS that struggles to survive due to poor management and operations across the organization. We must give them billions in order to save our democracy.
At some point, we have to realize that these Democrats are the same ones that continue to cry wolf. They did this over Obamacare. If we don’t pass it, people will die and you must pass it to know what’s in the bill. We see what that got us.
It’s the same Democrats that said millions of Americans would die due to coronavirus, but that has not happened either. The same ones that say we need to spend $3 trillion to save our country from the coronavirus pandemic. Are we really going to believe them with the USPS situation too?
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the celebrated infectious disease expert that the left trusts so much, says that we can safely vote this fall. Some people may choose to vote by absentee ballot, but the majority of Americans can safely go to their polling place and cast their vote like normal. The left wants to ignore this though, because we cannot safely vote without the USPS.
While Democrats are focused on finding some way to blame President Trump for the USPS situation, we need to focus on what they are doing. I’ve said it before, and I say it again, the USPS story is just the Democrats hedging their bets on Biden. They have a weak candidate that will do something to screw up the election, just ask his former boss.
