Bonus Episode | Shutdowns, Refund Checks and SNAP

BONUS episode to explain why certain federal employees are working and getting paid, while others are working and don’t know when they will receive a paycheck. I also talk about why the workers that process income tax refunds should NOT be called back into work and if this shutdown continues, families may not receive their SNAP benefits.
