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.

We demand a government that is accountable to all of us, not just wealthy donors. I support the Government By The People Act (H.R. 20), which reduces the influence of big-money campaign donors by amplifying the voices of all Americans.
