The FBI’s definition of domestic terrorism in the United States Code includes the following: To influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion.
How can any reasonable, objective person not conclude that the Republicans’ actions to shut down our government, unless they can successfully blackmail the other side, certainly fall under that definition?
They are willingly and enthusiastically inflicting pain and destruction on many people and critical programs in an attempt to change a law that has been legally passed, signed, survived over 40 attempts to repeal, and upheld by a conservative leaning Supreme Court. Debate the pros and cons of the ACA all you want, but it is the law.
It is despicable, if not treasonous, for the far right-wing faction and the rest of their cowardly party enablers to inflict severe damage on our nation unless they get their way.
They need to be held harshly accountable.
