AOC On Helping USPS: “Would You Guys Be Down & Excited If I Set Up A National Progressive Pen Pal Program?”

Democratic representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has a plan to “help” the United States Post Office amid the post office controversy.

In a video shared on Twitter, AOC is seen proposing to her supporters a “national progressive pen-pal program” to boost stamp sales.

“I have been thinking about ways to help you help the post office,” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And I think I’ve got an idea,” she continued. “And I’m interested in hearing your thoughts.”

“So one of the best ways in supporting the post office is to buy stamps,” the New York congresswoman claimed. “What do you all think? Would you guys be down and excited if I set up a national progressive pen pal program?”

“[We would] do all the work of connecting you to somebody else. We would offer maybe some conversation prompts or postcard prompts, and even like a printable postcard format. You just send it out. Would you guys be down? Do you like that idea?” she asked. Video Below
