On-time mail delivery has plummeted under Postmaster Louis DeJoy—forcing veterans to wait longer for prescriptions, seniors to scramble to pay bills without their Social Security checks, and communities to feel less connected.

Democrat congresswoman Katie Porter has decimated Louis DeJoy for his leadership of the United States Postal Service (USPS) amid concerning figures for “on time” deliveries.
Ms Porter, with the aid of a whiteboard and marker pen on Friday, pointed to a damning audit of USPS deliveries after Mr DeJoy was appointed by Donald Trump last year.
Appearing via video link during a House oversight committee hearing in Chicago, the Democrat ran through the results from the audit that found “that by the spring of 2020 [on time] mail delivery was right around 92 per cent,” before collapsing by January.
She held-up a whiteboard with a chart showing how “on time” USPS deliveries went from about 92 per cent in the spring of 2020 to around 61 per cent by January of 2021.
