Arrest and Try House GOP Leadership for Sedition

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

I call on the Justice Department of the United States of America to arrest Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and other decision-making House Republican leaders for the crime of seditious conspiracy against the United States of America.
There are currently 62,501 signatures. NEW goal - We need 75,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The House GOP leadership's use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down the government and threaten the U.S. economy with default is an attempt to extort the United States government into altering or abolishing the Affordable Care Act, and thus, is self-evidently a seditious conspiracy. Arrest the perpetrators in Congress immediately and bring them to justice.
