To Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America:
The Affordable Care Act is the LAW OF THE LAND, passed by both Houses of Congress (yes, even the Republican controlled House of Representatives), signed by you, and affirmed as constitutional by the U. S. Supreme Court. Therefore, attempts by Republicans in Congress to DEFUND what is federal law is criminal behavior, just as disobedience to any other law is criminal behavior. We should allow no exceptions here. By engaging in criminal behavior, the Republicans sitting in Congress, even going so far as to shut down the government rather allow what is federal law to be funded have forfeited their right to be representatives of the people, like anyone else who commits a federal crime. I call upon you, as the elected Chief Executive of the United States, to direct the Department of Justice to issue arrest warrants against every Republican in Congress and charge them all with CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT SEDITION! END THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN BY REMOVING THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FROM OFFICE NOW!

-I think what you propose gets us further away from anything resembling ‘normal’ government and deeper into the ‘crisis’ mode of governing. We don’t need to arrest lawmakers or talk about treason and such; while I certainly agree that the Republicans are putting party ahead of country I believe that the the correct thing to do is to punish them at the ballot box and make it clear that they and their ideas are thoroughly rejected by the American people.
What I wish for is that we could have some nice boring technocrats who ensure that the government runs efficiently as opposed to true believing maniacs who are certain that if we all just do what they say we will have utopia.
