Blunt on Post Offices

Missouri Senator Blunt is mirroring his Missouri colleagues concerns as a postal service bill moves its way through the senate.

Senator Claire McCaskill wants to put a 2 year freeze on closing rural post offices to save money. Blunt says he doesn't want to kick the can down the road for 2 more years, but says the Senate bill itself is being looked at carefully the next several days in Washington.
