Daines Calls USPS Slowdowns a “Non-Exis[tent] Problem” Despite New Report Revealing “Significant Delivery Delays” for Prescription Drugs
Helena, MT – A new report shows that “changes” made to U.S. Postal Service operations, spearheaded by Postmaster General and super-donor Louis DeJoy, have caused “significant delivery delays for mail-order prescription drugs, putting the health of Americans in danger.” Data from five major pharmacies and pharmacy benefits managers “reported an increase in average delivery times.”
Despite these troubling developments, Senator Steve Daines deemed potential delays in Postal Service operations a “non-exist[ent] problem.” The USPS is particularly important for Montana’s rural communities, veterans, tribal nations and seniors – yet Daines refuses to stand up for them.
“This troubling new report shows that the changes to USPS operations are having dangerous impacts on Montanans — yet Steve Daines brushes off these slowdowns as ‘nonexist[ent]’,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “While the well-being and health of Montanans is on the line, Daines is too busy looking out for himself and his re-election to fight for their needs.”
