Cummings: No Dem votes expected for Issa postal plan

without comments

Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said Tuesday that he does not expect any Democratic colleagues to back a Republican bill to revamp the U.S. Postal Service.

The Oversight panel is scheduled to mark up Chairman Darrell Issa’s measure on Wednesday, after the California Republican toned down some of his proposals from the last Congress.

But Cummings told The Hill on Tuesday that, without pretty significant changes, Issa’s postal plan will once again have to pass the committee without Democratic votes.

“I think we’ll have a good discussion,” Cummings said. “But I think in the end, it’s going to be very difficult.”

Inaction and more talk, business as usual at Congress.
