A Visualization of the Government Shutdown

The clock’s still ticking; this elegant visualization shows exactly what that means. A piece at the Nation reminds us that “the government shutdown has already kicked 7,000 children out of Head Start, and endangered 9 million women and children on WIC, including 2,000 newborns in Arkansas that may not receive nutritional formula if the shutdown persists,” and details how some domestic violence shelters are two weeks from having to close their doors.
