His predecessor, Postmaster General John E Potter testified before the Senate4 that if the Postal Service is not able to readjust their payment toward the pre-funding of retiree health benefits, as mandated by the Postal Accountability & Enhancement Act of 2006,5 the USPS would be forced to consider cutting delivery to five days per week during the summer months of June, July & August Donahoe echoed his predecessor's views on five-day delivery when he assumed office in 2011

On February 6, 2013, Donahoe announced that the Postal Service would implement five-day mail delivery beginning August 5, a move he claimed would save $2 billion annually Later the same day, the national board of the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association voted unanimously to call for his dismissal6 July 16, the House passed the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill, which included language protecting six‐day mail delivery, thereby blocking Donahoe's plan
