President Report: TSALC President’s 4th QTR Report

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Now that the holidays are over we have a lot of work to do with a new congress The 2017 election cycle was wild and people were fed up with gridlock party politics.  People wanted change and that’s what we got. What kind of change, we’ll see.

Republicans control it all, the house, senate, and the white house.  As President Trump gets inaugurated, how many changes will we see in his first few months?  We can see some of the changes to come with the appointees for his cabinet.

Looking back at these last few months, we have been contacting our congressional representatives trying to get co-sponsors on all postal legislation, preparing for the convention, and getting people out to vote.  It has been a busy couple of months. 

We just hit the reset button and start all over again on our co-sponsors. Maybe in the 115th congress we can convince more Texas members to sign on to Door-To-Door Deliver, Six-Day Delivery, and Delivery Standards of 2012.  It’s all of our jobs to so.

I hope to see many branch presidents at the Texas State Committee of Presidents (COP)

Vice-President Report: Greetings;  

Now that the control of the House and Senate is controlled by the Republicans the talk is about cutting Medicare for millions of Americans.

Speaker of the house Paul Ryan(R-WI) has made it clear that he is ready to pursue options to privatize Medicare.

Hell, even Trump is backing off his campaign promise to protect Medicare.

Even more concerning Trump wants to make Rep. Tom Price(R-GA) secretary of Health and Human Resources he wants to destroy Medicare as well.  More
