    We can try to keep track of SSI and Medicare -- we're hearing a lot about that, but I don't think most Americans have a sense of which of their neighbors are working for companies on federal contracts and, so, which families are going to need a little extra support from neighbors in the days or weeks to come.

    What does it mean to be on a federal contract? Just defense? Road building? Space science? Or is it everything?

      many different federal contracts. Museums, National Parks, engineering, technical publications, gun permits, passports, immigration, all sorts of things people don't always think about.
