Politics Breaking News: House Panel Passes Bill to Cut Back Mail Delivery

by Wochit 1:09 mins

A House of Representatives committee advanced a bill by a 22-17 vote along party lines to end Saturday delivery of first-class mail and eliminate direct-to-door delivery to help the struggling U.S. Postal Service shave costs. Lawmakers expect stiff opposition in the Senate. The Obama administration will tell lawmakers that it won't declare Egypt's government overthrow a coup allowing the United States to continue providing $1.5 billion in annual military and economic aid to the Arab world's most populous country. In his third economy speech in two days, President Barack Obama said the House Republican budget is a "bad bargain" for the middle class. Obama says the House GOP wants to cut spending on education, science and clean energy when the country should be investing in those sectors and cutting back in those areas would be like waving a "white flag of surrender" in a global economy.
