The Democrats have been using no Tax refunds during a Government shutdown against Trump and the Republicans. However, this will be short lived after the White House announced tax refunds will still be happening during the shutdown.
The White House Office of Management and Budget announced Monday that tax refunds will still be issued during the shutdown. Acting OMB Director Russell Vought stated to reporters will be making the shutdown as “painless as possible consistent with the law.”
The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump administration overturned the rules that prevented tax refunds during government shutdowns. This will likely harm the Democrats attempts to make a Government shutdown seem like the apocalypse.
