More Gross Myths on USPS and Bypass Mail

From introducing legislation to support the USPS with relief funding to defending critical programs like Bypass Mail, Senator Sullivan has a strong, well-documented record of fighting for the delivery of goods, services, and mail throughout Alaska.

Without a platform or any record to run on, Al Gross and his Democratic consultants continue to make lying and deceit a key theme of their campaign.

Learn the facts behind Al Gross’
newest attacks on Senator Sullivan.

GROSS MYTH #1: Dan Sullivan Didn’t Stand up To Cuts To U.S. Postal Service for “Political Purposes”

FACTS:
  • The only person playing politics with the U.S. Postal Service is Al Gross.
  • Gross may not know this, but the U.S. Postal Service does not typically receive tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, Senator Sullivan and Congress voted to give USPS a $10 Billion loan, which Sullivan supports turning into a grant.
  • Not only that, Senator Sullivan has also cosponsored legislation to give the USPS $25 Billion to further shore up its finances during this pandemic.
  • Ironically, just last week – Senate Democrats blocked a bill that would have turned that $10 Billion loan into a grant.
  • So don’t let Al Gross’ lies confuse you – the only person playing politics with the Postal Service is Al Gross and his Democratic allies in Congress.

 GROSS MYTH #2: Alaska’s Bypass Mail Program is “On the Chopping Block”

FACTS:

The only “not telling the truth” about the Bypass Mail Program is Al Gross. Gross would rather lie about someone else’s record than explain to Alaskans why his liberal policies are bad for our state.
