Into Delivering an Election - Into America Podcast – Ep.

The US Postal Service reaches every corner of America – from cities to small towns. They promise to deliver our mail in rain, sleet, snow, and now in a pandemic. But for years, the post office has been in financial decline. Without government assistance, Postmaster General, Megan Brennan estimates that the office could run out of cash by the end of September. Despite this, the USPS will play a major role in the November election—over half of the electorate could vote-by-mail this fall because of the pandemic. But could a hamstrung postal service hurt the election process?
On this episode of Into America, Trymaine Lee sits down with NBC News Business Correspondent Stephanie Ruhle to understand the financial struggles facing the post office. Plus, a former deputy postmaster general gives an inside look at how the funding debate in Washington, DC could impact the election this fall. https://link.chtbl.com/gyRBON0d?sid=ep19» Subscribe to NBC News: http://nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC
