Goodman also talked about the decision to address politics on the series, explains that "because things that affect families in middle America, they're going to affect us and we want to be not demonstrating but just showing how it affects a family who is living paycheck to paycheck, how they handle these things, and how much they have to forget just to get through the day". She goes, "Oh, John's in".
