Gadarian weighs in on Trump's recall of federal employees in US News

Gadarian,-Shana"Politicians are always looking to avoid blame," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science. "It's not surprising that the IRS is one of the agencies where people are now going back, because people do notice if they don't get their tax refunds on time. What this is doing is to try and get the public to not notice, to smooth over some of the bumps we'll see if the shutdown continues much longer." Gadarian was interviewed for the U.S. News & World Report article "Faced With Bad Optics, Trump Recalls Workers."  01/17/19
