Federal shutdown affected US in ways unseen
In this Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013 photo, Carter Howard sits and watches a cartoon during his asthma treatment at his home in Northbrook, Ill. On the days when asthma gives Carter the most trouble, his mother is reminded how doctors at Rush University Medical Center had to stop submitting applications for research grants to study childhood asthma and other diseases and disorders due to the federal government shutdown.
