Patrick Greene could soon see his rent double.
The 70-year-old man lives with his wife, Karen, in a two-bedroom apartment in Montgomery, Alabama.
He pays $460 a month for the apartment, and the rest of his $940 rent is normally covered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Due to the stalemate in Washington, D.C., however, his landlord informed tenants that she hasn't received the government funds.
"We literally have no idea what's going to happen," Greene said, adding that he and wife live off around $1,500 a month.
