Democratic lawmakers want to give the U.S. Postal Service a $25 billion bonus to help it manage mail-in voting in the upcoming U.S. general election. But Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, President Donald Trump, and many Republicans in Congress say the agency could manage without the extra cash. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called lawmakers back from their August recess to debate and vote on the bill, which passed Saturday by a vote of 257-150. Twenty-six Republicans voted for it.
