Congressman Boyle Demands IRS Issue Refunds During Government Shutdown
WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) joined 51 colleagues in sending a letter to the Trump Administration demanding the IRS issue refunds during the government shutdown, despite Republicans’ refusal to fund the IRS. Congressman Boyle released the following statement upon sending the letter:
“President Trump’s reckless government shutdown has already cost countless Americans critical government services, and 800,000 federal workers their paychecks. We cannot allow his erratic demands for an expensive, unpopular, ineffective border wall to cost people their tax refunds as well. These refunds are vital for American families, particularly working people trying to make ends meet. I call on President Trump to issue these refunds and open the government at once.”
Congressman Boyle is a Co-Chair of the Blue Collar Caucus, a group of House Democrats aimed at fighting for working people.
