This past week, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson was defending the Post Master General and the Trump regime’s efforts to hamstring the United States Postal Service…and he tried to do math again:

Johnson said that even if every voter sent in their ballot by mail, “that would be approximately 150 billion pieces of mail, or less than 6% weekly volume. As long as election officials factor in normal postal delivery capabilities” and factor weekly volume declines in mail, he said, “the postal system has more than enough excess capacity to handle mail-in balloting.”

emphasis mine

There are approximately 330,000,000 people in the United States in 2020. Even if everyone of them was an eligible voter (which they are not), how does he come up with 150 billion pieces of mail?
