Wash Post: Food stamps for 38 million low-income Americans would face severe reductions and more than $140 billion in tax refunds are at risk of being frozen or delayed if the government shutdown stretches into February, widespread disruptions that threaten to hurt the economy.

The Trump administration, which had not anticipated a long-term shutdown, recognized only this week the breadth of the potential impact, several senior administration officials said. The officials said they were focused now on understanding the scope of the consequences and determining whether there is anything they can do to intervene.

Thousands of federal programs are affected by the shutdown, but few intersect with the public as much as the tax system and the Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the current version of food stamps.

The partial shutdown has cut off new funding to the Treasury Department and the USDA, leaving them largely unstaffed and crippling both departments’ ability to fulfill core functions.

It was posted by someone in the White House that those receiving Food Stamps would get February's  Food Stamps on January 19th..

Unlike Obama, who shut down open air monuments just to inflict pain, Trump is doing everything in his power to keep services flowing. Food stamps are being paid so that is just more fake news.

Just heard Trump economic adviser Kevin Hassey tell furloughed federal workers to think of the shutdown as a 'vacation.' Right, while you're worried if you can make your mortgage or rent payment, pay bills, put food on the table, y'all just have fun on that vacation.
