President Trump’s Shutdown Differs Greatly From President Obama’s: Here Are A Few Ways How

excerpt:

  • The OMB has been operating under the orders to cause as little disruption as possible during the partial government shutdown.
  • The response differs greatly from that of the previous administration.
  • Critics charge acting Director Russ Vought’s push to keep services functioning might land the administration in legal trouble.


Services typically suspended during government shutdowns have continued to operate under the Trump administration, with insiders pointing to acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought as the reason why.

Agencies impacted by government shutdowns are forced to severely cut back on operations, suspend services and often send workers home without pay. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been using creative solutions to blunt the burden, according to a senior administration official and several prominent Republicans.

Vought joined the OMB in early 2018 and assumed the role of acting director Jan. 3 after Director Mick Mulvaney became President Donald Trump’s acting chief of staff.

“From the president on down, my marching orders from Russ is to make this shutdown as painless as possible,” a senior administration official, who asked to talk on background so they could speak frankly, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The response by the Trump administration has differed greatly from that of the previous administration during the 2013 shutdown.

“What the marching orders in the last administration were was to weaponize the shutdown, to make it as painful as possible,” the official continued. “They did things as a policy matter, to not keep programs running, to not keep services running, to not have federal workers delivering services as a policy matter and as a political matter.”

What? Odumbo doing blatantly political things to try to get his way and screw anyone who might be negatively impacted? No way? I just can't believe that would be true. :sarcasm:
