I worry about 800,000 government workers who have had their livelihoods stolen, and clutch their chests as they lie awake in bed at night trying to figure out how to pay the rent, the gas bill, for groceries, and for medication. This is the direct and most understood effect of holding the American people hostage with this shut down, but it is far from the only terrible impact. Philadelphia has a 26% poverty rate, one of the highest in the nation. Of that 26%, nearly half (12.2%) are living in deep poverty, with incomes below 50% of the federal poverty limit. Even before the shutdown, people were struggling to make it day by day.
