    In 2012, Issa blocked HR 1351, which would have fixed the pension problem. It had 229 co-sponsors, but never made it up for a vote because Issa blocked it.

    Congress can take the first step toward saving the Post-Office by passing H.R. 1351 proposed by Rep. Stephen Lynch , D-Mass., designed to eliminate various accounting games that have for years hijacked postal funds for the U.S. Treasury. The bill would be a financial lifesaver — stopping $55 billion to $86 billion of potentially unnecessary post office overpayments to the two federal retirement programs.

    "Despite the fact that the bill, introduced in April last year, has 229 co-sponsors, it has yet to reach a vote on the House floor. House Government Reform Chairman Darryl Issa , R-Calif., is blocking it because he 'wants to privatize everything, and destroy union jobs,"' according to Sally Davidow , communications director for the American Postal Workers Union.
