White House Axed USPS Plan To Send 5 Masks To Every American Household: Report

The postal service was reportedly going to distribute 560 million reusable face masks across the U.S. before White House officials expressed concern that the move would cause “panic.”

The United States Postal Service drafted an ambitious proposal in April to send a pack of five face masks to every residential address in the U.S. before top White House officials killed the idea, according to an analysis by the Washington Post of documents acquired by the watchdog organization American Oversight.

American Oversight, which obtained over 9,000 pages related to the USPS via the Freedom of Information Act, released the documents in late August. One of the records, entitled “U.S. Postal Service to Deliver Face Coverings to Every American Household,” is a draft of a press release indicating that USPS planned to “distribute 560 million reusable cotton face masks on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to every residential delivery point in America, beginning in areas which HHS has identified as experiencing high transmission rates of COVID-19 and to workers providing essential services throughout the nation during this pandemic.”

2. They didn't want to create CONCERN??

The complete incompetence, denial, and partisanship here just blows my mind.

They are all CRIMINALS who belong in PRISON!

3. Meanwhile, Taiwan gives weekly vouchers to every citizen for new masks,

which are distributed at local pharmacies.

This method has insured that everyone has an adequate supply of disposable masks, while at the same time, preventing hoarding of PPE.

Taiwan is doing very well because they are executing a very effective pandemic response.
