The House GOP leadership's use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down Govt. threaten the U.S. economy with default is an attempt to extort US Govt. into altering or abolishing the Affordable Care Act. Thus a seditious conspiracy.

Another one bites the dust. This time the appeal was struck down. Virginia is now one step closer to marriage equality, as the case is likely on its way to the Supreme Court. Now Virginia has a Governor and Attorney General who support it. Let's do this!
