The people responsible for this are domestic terrorists. If any other group of people tried to shut down the government, they would be in prison for treason. If this isn't extortion at the very least, then I don't know what is. And yes, it's atrocious that out of all people, they are still getting paid. Our congress is blatantly corrupt.
